When we looked at this in expl3, it didn't seem that useful to store all messages on disk like this (since RAM is cheap and you can still logically separate messages into files to \input if you like). However, there is a separation between calling an error/warning and invoking its text, so the idea of multilingual features is still possible.
(A nice side-feature of this separation is being able to hide/demote errors to warnings and warnings to info messages.)
If anyone is interested in exploring this idea, bring it up on LaTeX-L for further discussion.
