I don't think so. If there are some performance issue, yes. But adding
a lot of #translated is a gettext way, and stupidly simple.

We don't have enough experience to make a new way. I'm conservative
about this issue because we have already done enough failure.
So I prefer to ship a build in gettext way as well as possible, then
find better ways.

Hehe, I'm sorry...
