It is not exactly correct. zh_TW and zh_HK translation are intelligible
with each other, but there are subtle differences in wording usage,
which can almost be addressed by a one-to-one glossary conversion
script. That's why I want to reopen the ticket.

Hong Kong people can understand zh_TW translation, and Taiwan
people can understand zh_HK translation; but they would feel
not entirely comfortable with it. That's the point.
