I agree this may be a problem, but I thought about some solutions:

Adding a big DISCLAIMER at the beginning of every message explaining
that the translation is there just for information and that people
who need to care about the security updates of a server should subscribe
to the original debian-security-announce to receive notifications as
soon as possible.

Also, it may be usefull to set up cron jobs to send a special DISCLAIMER
message every week or so. 

"People won't read" is not a good argument, IMO. If they're not going to
read a big DISCLAIMER how are they supposed to care about security or
about the contents of the advisory?
