Storing every single form labels as custom content type.

Our team is building a rather large enterprise application.  Alfresco is the ECM that will be storing all the content.

 

However, we're being told that they literally mean ALL static content, including small things like form labels, such as "Gender", "Login", "Submit" because:

 

1. developers do not want to hard-code in any static values into their code.

2. some customers that use our software are willing to pay additional fee for having flexibility to relabel those labels to "Sex", "Log On", "Save".

 

Setting aside performance implication (which they probably addressed through periodic indexing jobs), is there a precedent for storing micro content like this in Alfresco?  Is there a reference / guide that I can refer to for this?

 

What is the best way to content modeling and create content type of this scale, and also allow for customer specific overrides/customization?

 

I know this is an unusual topic, so your thoughts would be much appreciated.
