If you are going to provide l10n of these messages, you'll need to do it in 
userland somehow.  However, if you return strings that task becomes a bit 
harder.  I still prefer returning error data, not presentation, and letting 
something else (userland) take care of formatting error data and presenting 
it to the user.
