Note that my question is a little bit different. What I am trying to
figure out is weather we can make modifications in Codeina configuration
in order to support other codecs packages in some regions, not to
include codecs directly on the distribution, because of what Rahul and
Max said.

I am in favor to keep the local language spin package selection as near
as possible to the LiveCD, as well as the default applications. We could
just add or remove some of them to fit the local needs. That's why I am
considering this things about Codeina. The current implementation does
not correspond to our reality. If we can't change it, I see no point to
keep it in our local spin.
