Not necessarily unfuzzification gone bad. There's actually no strict
policy on how to translate the keymap names.

For instance, keeping, or not, the keymap name in parenthesis is
neither enforced nor prohibited.

I just modified the entire French list to actually remove these "names
in parenthesis" equivalence. Most of the time, there is no point in
repeating the keymap file name while we only have on variant per
language per architecture (with very very few exceptions, all motivated)

What you point here is mostly inconsistencies from one language to
another.... which is not something we recommended or discouraged.

I would say: define your own policy for your language avec that will
be fine..:-)
