I mostly agree, but we do not have to delay because of less active
translators. IMO one week is enough to polish all PO files.
And if the freeze is announced very early, say 2 weeks before it begins,
then translators have 3 weeks to work on them, which is very fine.

There is no script, a daily cronjob sends
to debian-l10n-french. I do not know whether sending a full status
report to -boot does help, but I could try to if it is useful.
