Let's assume Czech. Dots are used after numbers to denote ordinals (1. = 1st, 8. = 8th, etc.). Dots are used between numbers in dates (3.9.1975 or 3. zř 1975 = September 3rd 1975). Dots are used at the end of abbreviations, though to make things harder some abbreviations are so common that they do not need the dot and if there's an abbreviation at the end of a sentence, you do not double the dot. And of course some sentences end by a question or exclamation mark.

Anything that would not take into account the language would fail on any nontrivial text. Even if it did take the language into account, there would be "false positives" and missed sentences.
