There are at least two reasons that this is difficult to be done:
1. Xfce is quite modular, and the user is expected to install only the
modules he/she desires. Bundling the translations in bigger sets would
be against this, and providing a seperate package for just those
packages would be an overkill.
2. File conflicts between packages. 'nuff said.
