I was wondering whether it is a good idea to do this so shortly before
release. I surely agree with improving the style, but doing so now
obsoletes or fuzzies many of the existing translations, with just a
short time to update them, which means that the program will be less
translated in Etch than it is now.

Is it a good idea to improve some style details if this is at the cost
of less translations? Isn't it better to do this right /after/ Etch?
I've been explicitly holding off of making tweaks to templates right
before a release.

In that case, it doesn't matter as nearly all translations are indeed outdated because even the current version was providing an outdated POT file.

So, even for language who will not be able to complete their cycle and update the file, the debconf templates will not be less translated with the second NMU than the first one.
