Are you using TDE <= 3.5.13? We've done significant branding issue work since then. The GIT version is practically free of all such branding problems. The upcoming SRU release should be free of most branding issues too.

Please let us know if you use the nightly GIT packages and you see these branding issues!

We can't do anything about "would have been easier." What happened, happened. We can fix what we have, however. :-) Yet we need continual feedback from users, otherwise we won't see all of these branding issues. Not every person involved uses every app or uses various apps to the same degree. This is also true with i18n files. Only users of non-English languages will notice those errors. :-)
