JSF message in faces-config.xml itself

Hi All, JSF Newbie Question:

Is it possible to use messages from a bundle within faces-config.xml?

For example in faces-config.xml I have the following:


I want to set some default values for a managed bean which contains an array whose values I want to show up in a listBox or comboBox for a JSF Faces page, rather than hard-coding english literals in the faces-config.xml like:


I'd rather reference the message bundle from from the application element type above? Is this possible? If not how does one configure default values through the file in an international-friendly way?

Thanks in advance
