The problem is minor changes, like capital letters in menu entries, that
concerns only en_US version but because this version is the source for
all the localization, this is also visible in localized versions where
it could be considered as wasted time for localizers.

Shortcuts can't be automated as they are localized (Ctrl and Shift). And
the problem with automation is that we need somebody to write the
scripts ;) The same for accelerators, where we need to adapt them to
translated words.
Anyway we will have a discussion about it with developers and UX team,
once we are out of the 4.4.0 rushes.
