Policy says a different thing:
* Localized man pages should either be kept up-to-date with the
original version or warn that they're not up-to-date, either with
warning text or by showing missing or changed portions in the
original language. [12.1]
So you can still ship the not up-to-date manpages but you have to warn
users of their state.
