It's likely that the number of native Latin _speakers_ is near zero.

That's why in my accounting I didn't allot any points for _spoken_ Latin.

As for realism I conceded that point from the outset. I'm just cringing at how expensive it is for the PCs to do this thing that the GM wants them to do. Languages in 4e are probably overpriced in their comparative utility to other things of the same price.
