DB was only an example ... you could set the strings into context, f.e. 
not always loading strings for server status

only load the strings needed on page


loads only strings needed in main and makes them available, as constants 
or whatever

additionally you could use

PMA_str() to retrieve strings not in current context but needed, f. e. 
in case of an error

i do not say that it is necessary to make a function call for every 
single string
