Of course, as you explain later, for translators they are. Remember
the "levels". So, from the translation team point of view, files for
iso-codes, console-data, xorg, samba, dpkg, etc. are "d-i files".

Of course, technically speaking they aren't as you clearly point.

To answer Clytie's quesiton, getting commit access to all D-I
translators for all packages that are part of D-I levels would be a
huge hassle and I'm not completely sure that all maintainers would be
keen with "random people" getting commit access to "their" repository.

So, we slowly established the concept of "l10n assistants" (often
myself, sometimes other people) who do the job (and do it well for all
packages and also help maintainers to cope with the l10n flux....or
sometimes request them for "translation uploads".

I see no urgent need to change this now. It works.
