No, not at the moment.

There is nobody from ubuntu-l10n-ro team that decided to not license
their translations.

No, this is giving us a clean state from the point we remove
"non-complying" translations.  This has been widely announced and
discussed since June 2008, and that should have been enough time for
people to make their own choices (and the last few months they were
unable to edit translations in Launchpad unless they agreed to the new
license terms, so it would be obvious for anyone coming to Launchpad in
the last 5 months).

Cheers,
Danilo
