I think only developers (all of them, though) are allowed to commit in
debian-doc module, but I guess a pserver account could do.
Generally, it should be okay to put any translation in the same subdirectory
as the original document. We already do that for several docs.

Anything's possible, but I didn't see any requests for that.

That would be nice, but it's kinda tricky since not all default makefiles
also build the translations, and finding out if any translations exist in
the .wml would require quite a bit of tweaking...
