They still get loaded stripped and uploaded into language packs with 
opportunities along the way for LP translators and infrastructure to "improve" 
the situation.

We've repeatedly asked for existing KDE translations to be locked so that the 
only thing Ubuntu translators can do is provide missing strings.  It's not a 
priority apparently.

I still support that we not import core KDE translations into Rosetta and just 
use the upstream translations directly.  I think it would both provide better 
translations for users and be less work for developers.
