In cases where that's not possible, I think the current approach of
having the language selector install the missing pieces is better.
Since a few days ago this should work even better:

language-selector (0.3.3) hardy; urgency=low

  [ Arne Goetje ]
  * added .note files for update-notifier do be displayed in
    case the language-support is not complete

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * make the .note files translateable
  * make the build more robust

I. e. people do not actually need to know about its existance, but get
a notification for it.

Testing and feedback heavily appreaciated!
