 As discussed with @swissspidy at WC Torino, let's plan this for 4.8.

 The current patch should be updated to use meta capabilities instead of
 introducing new primitive capabilities (I don't know why I did this). We
 also decided to use the term "languages" instead of "translations" for the
 capability names.

 Let's introduce general capabilities as a first step (`install_languages`
 and `update_languages`). We can iterate later and introduce more granular
 ones (such as `current_user_can( 'install_language', $locale )`).
