I can't say for certain of course, but the choice not to include multiple language support in their cameras is because it adds extra complexity to the device which in turn adds to the testing time required.

It seems like they are releasing these language-crippled versions first in Japan and then releasing multi-language cameras elsewhere (it has been mentioned before that multiple European languages are supported on certain cameras). It's too bad they don't roll those updates back in the Japanese firmware with Japanese libraries selected as default. It doesn't seem like such a difficult thing to do.
