Right. I don't know if that's doable at this point or not. If not and if
we really wanted to there are some possible workarounds, like the hack
we used for popularity-contest.

Translaton would be nice, but IMHO it's not a blocker for this, we're
not at the point of having all of debian translated, and news items
would not appear during the base-config part of the install, which is as
far as we've gotten with near-complete translations so far.

I had the same experience. I thought it used to put news at the top with
a header and then changelogs, and I found this more obvious than the
current display of news in one pager, and changelogs in the second.
