That's not very easy to implement on the web server side. And besides, if
the page has fallen behind as much, I think we're doing our users a
disservice serving it, even if it is marked as outdated, because people will
still read the translation and not the original.

Remember that this is only for extremely outdated, in effect unmaintained,
translations. It's the same kind of clean-up that we do of the archives
for orphaned packages. I think it makes sense to do it for orphaned
