I think the defaults should actually really be in English, always.

Many themes are in English and don't support localization.  If you run
such a theme on a localized install, you will have some unpleasant mixed
language on the resulting public pages.

As a good example of this, themes call wp_loginout() which results in a
localized login/logout link, even if the public pages are intended in
some other language (e.g. English).

As part of localizing a theme, an explicit parameter to all such
functions should be passed, so that the resulting public pages can
uniformly use a single language correctly.

In other words, all theme localization should come from the language
file (po file) of the theme only, *not* from the backend language file
(the one in wp-includes/languages).
