Well, that's really not fair. Translators could ask the Release Team
whether it is relevant to consider translating/updating a $package,
especially when testing and sid have different versions. Dropping us a
mail to ask is fairly easy and the answer should be quick enough. I've
even seen l10n NMUs for packages not present in testing. How's that
relevant for a release? Especially when you have very limited resources.

IMHO, translators' energy should be spent where needed *only*.
