Indeed; given the amount of synced packages from Debian and the
current upload rate, there shouldn't be sooo much packages left at the
end which still contain translations. To avoid apt/dpkg troubles, the
remaining packages should be uploaded with a new version number at the
end (but no other changes).

I would vote against not rebuilding untouched packages, though. It's
not only a matter of CD space, but also a matter of avoiding to
download redundant data in debs.
