Thinking about it, I guess one reason why this discussion was so
unproductive is that I didn't realize that Justin was someone "only"
interested in translations. I thought that he was somehow reading the
debian-l10n-english list, but that the reason why he spoke up was that
he had a special interest in the package. I didn't have a clear
expectation why, but I was surprised to find that he is not particularly
interested in any of the involved fields (emacsen or latex).

I think this misconception got stronger after he made some very
reasonable suggestions involving the content of some texts, and then by
the fact that he had an opinion on the dependencies.

So maybe it would be a good idea, as soon as the discussion turns from
pure linguistics to content (and dependency relations is quite far from
that), to clearly point out what your background is.
