Well, technically committing this as-is would be a regression (the
string won't be translated, where it used to be), but no one would see
the regression (without the patch, the message got eaten).

I'm worried that if we don't keep the translation markup now, that we'll
forget and do a release where there is a useful and user-visible message
that fell through the translation cracks.  Even if that means touching
this line twice (once now for the same snprintf hack as nwfilter, and
once later once someone writes a cleanup dedicated helper function).
It's always worth a little extra pain to avoid a user-visible regression.
