Good decision.

Usually translators work on multiple projects (their distro, their desktop,
other favorite programs) and on a number of subprojects of each. Seeing a 100%
translated document receive an overhaul often is probably not the best thing for
them and hence, not for the project either.

This is one of the reasons I believe we should push the beat writers a bit more
to have their content not just filled in, but have it as ready as possible by
test3 or even test2. It's better to have strings not changing all the time and
large amounts of strings not filled in at the last minute.
