Unfortunately I hadn't an ability to follow in detail about this 
proposal (will check it later).

Anyway, the "Globalization" name itself seems too long for me (yes, we 
all have autocomplete in editors, but nevertheless).

What about "Locale"?

P.S.: Having a similar module in one of my projects I used directly 
"i18n" name. E.g. i18n.translate('welcome').
