I agree. Also, Makesysop and Newuserlog create log entries, but they are 
used as the content language when adding the logs to the recent changes, 
and as the user-chosen language when displaying the logs in Special:Log. 
The check of $wgContLanguageCode breaks the current languages mechanism.

I think we can place it in the extension file, as each extension has 
only a few messages.
