While I in principle would like to see such an trivial unfuzzier, I
would agree with Christian that this should not be implemented,
because the definition of "trivial" is quite hard. Sometimes even
editorial changes might affect translations (e.g. the translator got a
different interpretation before). While I don't like these updates
either, I would also prefer to keep this load (=decision) off the
reviewers (and I don't even know anything about easter languages and
their depencencies on "trivial" corrections in the english original).
