Can you p/invoke the LookupAccountName API, passing in the SID of the group
you want to use? Everyone and Authenticated Users are both well-known SID
values that don't change, so that might be a good way to get the localized

It is too bad that the .NET MQ API won't take a SID directly as then you
would not have this problem.
