I guess one of major reasons to keep fructose is localization issue
(its much easier for translators to have tough set of activities
to localize them at first).

In my mind its just remains from OLPC scheme(when where is only
one developer/deployer). But now, another deployment could have another
priority in choosing activities.

So translate.sl.o could have several activity sets for various
deployers/deployments such we have now only for OLPC.

And in addition to such sets, using "Featured activities" which
will be set of featured activities on ASLO(last activity versions).
