If it isn't marked, there is no harm in marking it now, unless we don't
want people to miss the magical "100% translated". This at least gives
the opportunity for some people to translate it in time.

In GNOME, unmarked are not handled the same way as new strings during
the freeze period, and it seems to work well.

Keep well
