Because the only languages you speak are mandarin, cantonese and han, and  
you are using an IDE to develop your system that only requires you to deal  
with localised stuff for the rest of it.

Actually, that isn't using a localised attribute name, just one that  
actually has a little bit of obvious semantics. Would it make sense to  
require english speakers to use arabic characters?

While english is a very widely spoken language, most people still don't  
speak a latin language.
