Well, I actually see no point in writing that translating the Policy
is not worth it.

Any translation can be of some help for its readers...and we all
know that assuming that all Debian contributors being good English
speakers is much more a dream than a reality. So, well, if someone
cares enough for translating the policy, I really see no problem.
