I also like the download package as it currently is. I work in more than one language and it is 
very useful to be able to switch between languages without needing to install additional language 
packs. I also install Libreoffice for users with different language preferences and it's very handy 
to have one Multilanguage package so I don't need to be downloading language packs.

After all the negative comments on the download size in this old thread, I would like to say 
something positive: as a developer of LibreOffice/ extensions, I find the 
availability of language packs in the download excellent: it enables me to switch between interface 
languages in LibreOffice without the need to install several language versions of the same office 
suite. This is great if you want to check localised versions of extensions. However, I realise this 
is only a minority use case.
