Current the distribution architecture only handles locales.

That means if you have a section like:

[LocalizablePreferences-de]

It does not get used if you are on a build with a locale of de-DE. It only gets used if your locale is explcitly de.

We should handle language and locale (with a preference for locale). This will allow us to move to one distribution file for many locales/languages.

because the repack system doesnt use tags or branches for versioning against firefox, we cannot combine the repack locale builds until this changes makes its way into release.  We should get this uplifted to aurora to shorten the wait.
