After a chat with Neil, the impact for translators will be just the
addition of the "More suggestions" string, which I think is ok in terms
of translations, considering the amount of changes. So +1 from translations.

I fully agree with Jeremy on his reply, though, in that these changes
should a) be properly be communicated in advance and b) land much
earlier in the cycle.

Working at Canonical myself, I have full understanding for everyone
working hard to meet the deadlines and provide the best OS experience
with the best features to our users. But in line with our philosophy and
our values, we should also make an additional effort to have plans in
place to avoid or mitigate any extra work from our awesome and dedicated
volunteer contributors.
