It has been this way since po-debconf exists.

For a given debconf template to be shown translated to users, all
strings have to be translated, yes.

This is a design choice which I generally agree with (mixed screens
could appear strange to users).

A while ago, I reported a bug requesting that at least partially
translated Choices list could be presented (something that we're doing
currently in D-I localechooser for the country list).

For this, Denis Barbier recently implemented the "#flag:partial" trick
in po2debconf, which will allo having partially translated lists.

Actually, your mail reminds me about this trick which we could use in
that particular case.
