Well, as notting pointed out, this is a bit late to change in this
cycle, as we would have had to move feature freeze up to before now. ;( 

I would say: 

- Lets try and revisit this in the next cycle and adjust ?


- In this cycle, we should allow updates into the freeze that contain
_only_ translation fixes? This would need to be communicated to both
translators and package maintainers tho. 

Just my 2c.
