One valid worry of a submitter for such a case might be that he's
afraid of having to redo all the review mechanics for every such small
subpackage addition.

Maybe we should allow template reviews, e.g. the submitter lists 5
packages that are almost identical but the explicit locale definition
and get's a blanket-like approval granted of any further packages he
will copy off this template. When new languages make it to the stack
he simply adds a CVS request for another package pointing to the
template approval.

The same model could apply to font collections, themes etc.
