This decision has advantages and possible risks (most of them similar
to any "outsourcing" decision). For projects like MeeGo, LXDE,
Mercurial and Creative Commons (and almost 1000 projects) it worked
nicely. :-) Others, like XFCE, have more resources and can maintain
their own instance. In the end it's up to Infra, and so far Fedora has
shown that it prefers hosting its own services.

Cookies need love like everything does*. =)

Kidding aside, a service like translate.fpo needs a sysadmin with
direct interest for good translations.
