Case 1 has been correctly tracked for a long time (i.e. forever, or at
least since I've been around: i.e. if you revert to the packaged
translation by using the same string, Launchpad would continue to prefer
updates from the package).

Case 2 has been made automatic recently (December 2008).

What I talked about was UI that helped detect both cases which has been
around for a little less time.
