No, not about the rights, but about the framework.

I hope so :-)

Yes, it was a mistake.

Not revoke their rights, but before giving them rights, direct them first to 
the language team if any. If there's a problem, like the team not wanting to 
integrate the person for no valid reason, then you should give them access. I 
think you really should consider this. It does not seem to be specific to 
Arabic and other people have expressed concerns about this system too.
