I don't think that's what I wanted. All I had in mind was static resources/content. 

I do recognize that formatting strings with replaceable elements is an important consideration, though. (E.g., "%s sent you %d messages", where "sent" may be inflected to agree with %s, and there may be concord between %d and "messages".) And those scenarios stretch limits in relation to static resources.

I did not have in mind, for instance, MT scenarios that may need to deal with complex grammatical issues.
