Huge +1 here. This is an LTS release and I'm not sure this is the best
time to take upon this major overhaul given the amount of time
involved and the uncertainty about translations. Translations are very
important, particularly in an LTS, and we do a great disservice to our
translations volunteers if we do this without a plan for them, or
otherwise abruptly change things for them. How ever we do this, it's
likely that all strings will be shown as modified and they'll have to
begin translations from scratch rather than just updating changed

I'd feel much better doing this for 14.10, when it's a bit less
important to have a solid, translated documentation for release.
