There is a huge confusion between being a developer and having

I seriously do wonder why translators, if they really want to get the
developer status, don't get together and just apply for NM. That would
force the project to develop a strategy to deal with it (if there
is something that needs to be dealt with).
I am not sure what point you are trying to make ?
Could you make a short summary ?
About the specific item you mention above (develop a strategy to
"deal" with translators), I think that is _specifically_ what non
package maintaining contributors want: to be "dealt" with.
As for the buzz before election times, well, that's what election
times are for: create buzz. I don't see any problem with that.
