The policy for GNOME is that marking existing untranslatable strings for
translation isn't a violation of string freeze. This seems like solid
reasoning to me. If someone doesn't get to the string in time, nothing
changes. However, it gives some people the chance to translate a string
which would otherwise show up in English, period. Why not adopt a
similar policy?
