I'm afraid the answer is: "It depends".
The smarter the client, the better the decisions it will make and the
less the SRU server should get in its way. But, for dumb clients, the
more you can do, the better for the user.
So, I'd probably do both. I'd return the codes so the smart client can
use them and I'd take advantage of any language hints I had to return
locale sensitive data.
