Agreed. IMO, there's very little harm in having translations of
documentation out of sync with the exact wording the the "original"

I'm surprised, actually, that documentation has had any sort of freeze
process. Being a descriptive work rather than a defining one, I think it
makes sense to allow the documentation to be changed up until only just
a few days before release (to leave a tiny bit of time to fix up
compilation issues or whatever).
