To add to what Gordon wrote:

I wouldn't mind a language pack to that extent, but for a localization 
hosted on mozilla, we'd need a current audience.

I'd also suggest to investigate technical means to do the transcription 
from the Cyrillic one (we do that for Serbian, for example). 
https://gist.github.com/Pike/6525641 might be something you can adapt 
via Belarusian-Latin/BGN ?
