For current translation plan, yes: only about Document translation.

I think most translation teams are not interested in translating server 
projects on stable branches too much.

For web UI projects, although the volume of changes are not too much,
some translators have contributed translations on stable/mitaka branch 
for several web UI projects.

It seems that whether including translation on stable branches for web 
UI projects or not would be in a kind of cut-off region.
IMO not including web UI projects is a good idea since the amount of 
translations are relatively small.

Note that it is my personal opinion.
If other teams are focusing on translations on server projects and/or 
web UI projects, please share with us :)

Option 1 would be the worst among three options I think, since jobs are 
split to Xenial and Trusty and there will be two different management 
points, which will be complicated..
