I agree. It should have at least something in it.

We shoudn't probably offer straight up GPS tools, because people a
likely to install gps themselves. But a few examples should be
included I guess.

Resources are not translatable by nature as far as I know. ..

You cant, but I cant see how thats relevant. The old tool presets
always required 2 clicks, same for bringing up the dockable and
selecting a preset. Now, I personally just keep the preset selector on
top most of the time with tag active for currently relevant tool set.
Tool presets pay off when you need to use the same tool with very
different settings. Paint tools are an obvious case, but Im sure there
are others. I personally have presets for the common cut 2:3 + rule of
thrids guides. Its easyer to use the preset when ever I need it than
to go and configure it.

Since when does adding default resources counts as a feature or
involves significant amount of coding and risk of breakage? I would
agree if this was a coding task. It is not. If it was, there would be
something very wrong with the setup. We sort of promised our users
better resources with this release but nobody has take it up... The
very least we could do is to provide some defaults for the new things
so people know what it does.
