I heard one complaint that global resx files are compiled into DLLs, if we want to allow end users to freely edit the messages in XML document, deployments of new DLL will be needed, and in many enterprise shops, deployment of even a single DLL is a big
deal, so this can be troublesome. On the other hand, If we publish the resx as local resources, it is kept as raw resx but would changes trigger application restart?
The guy wants a custom mechanism that reads messages/resources from XML documents, the effort does not seem to be very big but do you guys think it is worth it? And is the complaint a valid one?

I think there was a ResourceReader / ResourceWriter streams which you can use to read / write resources just as if you were reading / writing files (except that it works with key / value pairs).
Why don't you research those streams and see if they can do the work for you?
Here is an example in msdn:
