I think it is a good solution. However a lot of code needs small, but 
expensive alternations. It would be nice to have this in 1.5.1  - the 
i18n version...

And the question how to handle template functions used in many 
themes/plugins using different domains is still open. Maybe a domain 
parameter should be added to template functions?
