I don't quite see how a leaf would be any more difficult to translate than water in different languages, at least, not the ones the games are usually available in. I also don't think that the leaf is the best representation of the Grass type (it's not Plant type), whereas Water and Fire describe both the Pokemon, and their respective types.

Aside from all that, though, I actually enjoyed that the remakes threwback to the original colors, rather than just those released internationally. I probably would've been more inclined to pick up WaterBlue over LeafGreen if they were my two choices, but I'm still happy with what we got. And aside from hacks (I'm sure there are already a few called WaterBlue), I wouldn't expect us a real WaterBlue from Game Freak, or any remake of the remakes, for that matter.
