i would definitely support such a structure but on the other side the
question is if it would be enough to trigger optional parts with appropriate
configure switches, e.g. mysql-connector-enabled. Extensions are somewhat
special because they can be provided as standalone extension packages or
they can be bundled. And therefor both directory structures can make sense.

But for the i18n stuff i would definitely separate it as you propose because
we have the main language English in the main repository. And of course as
you already mentioned we can identify useful parts that should belong to the
extra repo later.
