No, if you upload it as Published upload instead of User upload. The
uploaded file's translations are marked as being upstream, ie.
possible Rosetta translations take precedence but all the "empty
slots" are filled (and the rest can be reverted also back to Packaged
if there was some work done in Rosetta).

So, it exactly works as a hack to workaround current Rosetta problems,
but both we (all translation teams) and Rosetta developers need to
know about the problem points to do both short-term and long-term
