I don't know if it's feasable, but maybe a dh_updatetranslations which would
automatically grab debconf templates and describtions and bundle it in
before the package is built. This way the maintainers only have to care
*once* when they add the line and forget about it after that.

Dunno how you handle off-line building though.
