Translations and documentation are currently very closely tied to the
6 month release cycle. Are there any thoughts on how this would work
in a rolling release model? (there are probably other teams too, but
these spring to mind immediately)

I think having some expectations of what we would want to release each
monthly with regard to localization and documentation and getting
these teams involved in the discussion is important before any
decisions are made.
