While I agree that translations are probably better off outside the
spec, this argument doesn't really hold any water. We don't release a
new tarball anytime someone changes a translation in a library either.
And translators do just fine maintaining the translations on their on in
the repository without bothering the code maintainers about committing
patches. I don't see why something similar would not be possible for
spec file translation.
