You are clearly missing the point.  There are no essential problems
with translating on the first installation.  There are troubles
with keeping those translations intact across upstart updates.
Or you are proposing to keep /etc/inittab indefinitely as a kind
of a "master" configuration and run those translations every
time upstart is updated?  That does not sound very appealing.

And what happens the next time when an update showed up?  Keep in
mind that your translations are not marked as configuration files.
