Exactly. Once you have set up a bilingual page, it will become difficult
to get rid of it, so just don't get started.

There might be such requirements; there are many "accessibility
requirements" that considerably reduce accessibility (such as
requirements on accesskey assignments). You will then need to decide
whether you can break them or not. As long as nobody tells you about them
and actually threatens you with something to enforce them, you can ignore
