Do you have examples? What is it that they try to achieve that makes 
them depend on the dialog or control sizes (or positions)?

I wouldn't worry much about those as they would break in any non-English 
Windows version too. If the programmers were sloppy enough to depend on 
the control text then they certainly did not bother gathering the text 
used for each language along with potential variations across Windows 
versions. And in any case I don't think it's reasonable to require that 
all our translations use the same text as Windows.
