That's the policy of 20th century...:)

Now, I can happily fix "important" bugs in some of my packages with
the SRM approval, so I don't see why package descriptions translations
should be considered as carved in stone once stable is released..:-)
I should have subscribed to my bug :-(  - and I advocate to
update the translation files for Squeeze and Lenny.

* From my point of view they are actively maintained as
  there are point releases.
* To some degree the translators provide new pre-sid
  translations. Does Jon Doe know that there are recent
  translations at ddtp.debian.net?
* Language coordinators/team admins should take care of
  common errors. E.g. the use of "Implementation" in a
  German description is ugly and there are some occurences.
* The language teams have a lot of work because lots
  of discriptions are changed by dropping the article in the
  SD. Sometimes one can't resist and have a look at the
  previous work. There *are* (sigh!) contributions from
  inexperienced translators. If we're lucky, they are just
  hard to read. If we are not, something is *wrong*.
* I believe that the folks doing the work would like to see
  it available for the public.
