I do not have any problems. But moving l10n into grub.cfg (as opposed
to current putting translated strings there) means that

a) user is suddenly presented with English strings instead of
localized text as soon as menu entry editor is entered
b) it becomes even more incomprehensible for an average user.

I have seen many users complaining about how hard it became to simply
add "3" to kernel command line in grub2.
