One important difference though: Spanish is an XML-based translation which 
gives you the freedom to add additional paragraphs with such a 
disclaimer. I don't know if that makes it OK to include an unofficial 
translation of a legal text (as I've said before IANAL, and don't really 
want to be either), but at least you can make it very obvious _that_ it 
is unofficial.

The Vietnamese translation is PO-based, which currently does not give the 
same freedom and so even more care should be taken before translating the 
appendix.

BTW, the Swedish translation is also PO-based, so I do hope Daniel has 
managed to make their note conspicuous enough...
