As a translator I of course like deadlines, but if there is some default, the 
package maintainer should be aware of it also. Would they know about it 
without reading the documentation?  Is it shown and easily changed when the 
program is run?

If not, we could have some calls for translation which don't honor the 
specified deadline or have two calls in a row, where maintainer corrects the 
deadline in the latter.
