The "sublevel 6" is now in place for strings we want to change after a
unilaterally called freeze..:-)

So, now, changing things for good volatile support is possible as long
as the said templates are marked as belonging to sublevel 6.

And that also allows me to call for a string "half-freeze" whenever I
feel the need for it, without any endless discussion..:-)

To Charles Plessy: please also add the templates your proposed for
network-preseed, as long as you mark the strings as belonging to
sublevel 6.
