You can use Locale from mcs/build/common/Locale.cs

Since you won't be installing them in the GAC, it doesn't really matter
if you don't sign them.  It should be fine[1] to sign it with the mono.snk
too -- after all, the private key isn't a secret :-)

[1] I guess, at a philosophical level, it may be bad form to use
    mono.snk if you made significant custom changes to the code, but as
    you describe, that doesn't apply here
