For postfixadmin, here's what I wrote and, sadly, sent to a wrong
address a few days ago:

Please do NOT send translations for "debconf templates" of the
postfixadmin package.

This package does indeed NOT have debconf templates anymore.

It appears on the l10n status pages because the orig.tar.gz file does
indeed have a debian/po directory.....but the source package *with*
the Debian patches doesn't anymore.

That indeed confuses the script that gathers translations and
postfixadmin is then reported as *not* translated.

I do'nt really know what to do to fix this....except by gently poking
the package maintainer(s) so that the offending debian/po directory is
removed from the orig.tar.gz file.

For ruby-standalone, then yes maybe it shoul dbe translated
immediately for the reasons you're giving.

/me sad that maintainers introduce debconf templates so close to the freeze....
