For printing you should be writing on the 2d-dev list.

But this is really a localization policy question and should not be 
specific to a
particular UI component. I'm not sure where to take that. Probably to

Apart from the fact that localization of a single component  is not that 
interesting (by my count
there are about two dozen L10N properties files across the JDK) , 
there's the maintenance issue.
Someone needs to track any changes to components that are localised and 
make corresponding changes.
So I think there's a reluctance to take back one-off localizations.

There is almost no likelihood of getting a Dutch localization into JDK6
