Different apps may want a different logon screens?

message bundles work great for logging messages.  I'm not sure its 
always the case for rendered content.  I've also been told in the past 
that different cultures prefer different color schemes.

I don't know what the right answer is, but its something that should be 
researched for best practice.

Answering my own question: Openid Connect supports locale as a query param.
