Iced-Tea-Web is not consitstent with localized/hardcoded exceptions.
I'm in favour to abandon localized exceptions at all as I consider them as very evil.

Lookig to InvalidArgumentException usage - one, not localised
UnevenParameterException - one localised usage.
:(so even new patches are mingled):

I would like to encourage you to go back to hardcoded messages.

Feel free to persuade me oposite, feel free to find another vote, feel free to push it as it is, feel free to push it with hardcoded messages.

Again, thanx for contribution!
