  I don't think the idea of having a party as a representative toward the
GNU translation a bad idea...

  But tying the hands of the maintainer is... a certain path for the
maintainer to follow, concerning help text changes would be ok, I think.
Like reporting to a party... "I'd like to add this help text, or change
this help text here..."... that party could in turn, point exactly which
part of the translations should be changed as well (as we're probably just
talking about file references etc.).

  As Galen did, I'd consider that examplary...
