Yeah, german is spoken in other countries. Is there then a reason to restrict 
the translation to germany? 

some example:
wget installs the file /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/wget.mo
this is to provide translations for "all" de* locales. Not just the german 
one, but also for austria and swiss.
