If you add a field in the language file that does not exist in the English, it won't hurt anything.
If you were to add code in the controller and the was not a language file entry, there would be an error.
As well, if you add something in a tpl file that is not passed from the controller, you get an error.
The dependency is Template(tpl) depends in variable set in Controller which in turn depends on variables being available in language files.
My suggestion is supply language files based on current version with no modifications.
You could then include a file with modifications that can enhance or modify.
Because you may make additions not in the other languages, if someone adds your changes expecting them to also work with other language packs, it may work fine with Your language contribution, but break everyone else's.
