Reforming the System.Resources.ResourceManager

Have to admit, at first it looked pretty solid: creating a Resources class in the .NET framework to facilitate encapsualtion of content along culture lines.  But after using it again recently, and considering the more realistic necessity of keeping content database-driven, I realized there’s a need here for a class with the flexibility to allow for customizable UIs and that the ResourceManager that ships with .NET isn’t particularly useful for this purpose.
Oh sure, one has "GetObject()", "GetString()", and even "GetResourceSet()".  Unforutnately, with one’s resources locked into either sattelite assmblies or .resource files – one is pretty stuck with static, difficult-to-amend content.
Even more incredible at the moment, is that there’s no easy way with the mecahnisms included with any of the SDKs or other suppliementary materials in the MSDN library to amend the ResourceManager in a way that would allow it to treat a datasource as a dynammic ResourceSet.  True, one could try creaitng logic that would amend or create new .resource files and then compile them somehow at runtime – but this seems very, very messy.
However, the possibility that third-party products or classes may exist which do this.  If so – hear ye all now – I’m in the market to see one.  Failing that I might have to do what everyone else likely does in this situation – code one of my own right here in my own silo.
