There’s definitely no problem with shipping them in an egg, as long as it is possible to ship them at standard locations.
Standard according to whom though?
Contrary to many Linux systems, for example, the BSDs tend to install Python files to /usr/local or /usr/pkg (if using pkgsrc) and not /usr. I'm sure /opt is also still widely used.
Furthermore, if by standard you mean */share/locale/XX/LC_MESSAGES/, what good would an egg do at that place?
