Please, do not be lazy... Let's be practical, not bureaucratic. Wikimedia users
not only use Vector, but also other skins.

What is the difference between:
* [[MediaWiki:Vector-namespace-main]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-main]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-category]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-category]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-help]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-help]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-image]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-image]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-media]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-media]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-mediawiki]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-mediawiki]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-project]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-project]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-special]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-special]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-template]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-template]]
* [[MediaWiki:vector-namespace-user]] and [[MediaWiki:Nstab-user]]
etc.

Answer: Nothing(!) Both messages will *alwyas* have the same text.

I said about modifying messages locally where admins do not know that exist
extra messages for Vector. Admins of projects do not see qqq messages.
