The bug is perfectly valid since it would allow:

 * Sysop that is performing the block would see the block reasons in the
   drop-down in his/her preferred language.
 * Blocked user receiving the notification about being blocked would see the
   block reason in his/her preferred language.
 * Any user looking at the block logs would see the block reason in his/her
   preferred language.

Of course, manually entering a block reason wouldn't allow that, unless it
matches an existing interface message.

The only problem I would see is if any custom message clashes with an existing
interface message.
