The libc change only makes it possible for you to provide updated *gettext*
translations. It does not, in any way, provide you a way to update documents
(manpages, /usr/share/doc/ stuff) or data. For example of the later, t
ake a look at the data files distributed in the kde-i18n-XX packages. It
includes (localised): OGG, html, and png files (and the MO binary files).

This does not mean that I'm proposing that tdebs should include the same
files as in the base packages, actually, my proposal (still needs to be
written in the wiki) was based on the fact that the binary (program) packages
did *not* include the translation data since (on package build) this data was
extracted from the .deb packages and moved over to other (let's say .tdeb)
packages that the maintainer would upload to the archive.

Maintainers (or translation coordinations), either for a translation-update
only release in the sid or in the stable branch would upload updated .tdebs
(along with some updaetd source files, which is the tricky part).

Let's see if I have time to write down the approach I designed at Extremadura
so you guys can spot all the problems in it :)
