Different Titles.
Different Navigation.
Different Properties.
Different Expiration Dates.
Different ACLs.

I only know it *will* be different.
It's merely a matter of time.

Of course you could say why use siblings anyway?
Because we mostly have one editor for all languages. 
And we start new languages from completed content in language A.

Of course it's annoying to copy new files as siblings to all folders,
but it should be easy to implement a copy function without any special
cases like resource is already there, merge contents, ...
