I agree that we do not have to guarantee that the development version is 
translated. IMHO, priority for translation should go to the stable, or 
soon-to-be version which would mean that as soon as we create a release 
branch, translations should be maintained for this release branch as 
long as it is supported, but any old release branch should be in strict 
bug-fix only mode as soon as a new release is out, so message strings 
should not change much.

Does that sound feasible ?
