Helge Gabert has the most logical and versatile solution.

Why would HP not choose the most logical and versatile solution?

Added complexity, increased translation cost, increased implementation time, increased testing time, and the list goes on.

"Simply adding another setting" is never just "simple" nor in many cases the correct decision. Pretty soon you will have hundreds of flags, which nobody fully understands, which ...

Not exactly true, what about "about:config" (in FF) or "chrome://flags" (in Chrome). Only the access screen needs the translation (warning, don't touch the flags if you...) the settings inside just expose internal registers, even without descriptions or hints. I am not saying it is not extra work, of course it is, but it isn't a constant/endless extra work like adding the options to the user-accessible forms. And BTW I am sure if you expose the language files people will do the translations for free (I can help fixing the spanish one), no need to pay for these Tongue.
