Ok, I don't really understand this, because I would have thought that
all new strings are worth having in the interface asap before po
files, on the assumption that merging the outstanding pot files in the
queue probably wouldn't take that long (how many imports does
Launchpad get through per day?)

Having said that, maybe I'm missing something - I'm certainly not an
expert in localisation processes.

Not really, some of the pot templates have few changes, others have a
lot - they are all important. We are only a few days away from the
translation freeze now, and the queue doesn't seem to have reduced at
all, so I suspect we'll just have to accept that pushing post-release
updates for translations is going to be the priority and the initial
release won't be very well localised.
