I expected that translation would be integrated eventually. Christian
mentioned there are technical problems with that. I'm willing to help on
those if I can, but we haven't got around to discussing it yet (it wasn't
a big priority for me either).

You mean that because win32-loader doesn't produce udebs, it can't be
considered a D-I component, and therefore its translations can't be integrated?
Is this based on the assumption that only udebs provide programs that interact
with the user during the install process?
