I'm not sure that I understand this.  Do you mean that we need the locales
to *create* the module (e.g. detect localised cross references in the
original source), or that we need the locales to *display *the module (I
would have thought any OSIS modules would use OSIS refs rather than
localised references, and so would work OK), or that users of that text
would want to type in references in that locale (or something else?)
