Any example of a package whose 90% gets loaded piecemeal on demand?
Out of ~500 packages that Emacs has, how many are loaded into our
"usual" session?  And if we don't load all of those 500, why should we
load their message catalogs?

This is one of those aspects that make Emacs so different from other
localized programs.  I think the difference really justifies
separating the catalogs by package.
