 Well, if it happens a *lot* it would be sufficient for me to justify a
debian-devel-announce mail about it. Do you want to write one yourself,
have a suggestion for a text for it, or leave this decision to someone
else completely? I am lacking the background about the *lot*
unfortunately, but I trust you that your emphasis is justified.

 Especially then we should get maintainers more aware of the issue. It's
not that l10n is something that should be uncarefully stumbled over,
it's not too hard to play nice in that area.
