It's possible to do - but will the team continue doing translations? The
stable translations get less and less traction - and focus right now is
on *documents*. So, I'd rather avoid setting something up that is unused.

But 1 and 3 both allow translations to continue - and having seen
Clark's changes, 1 looks easier than expected.

But my expectation is that stable is string frozen, isn't that the case?
You shouldn't change strings just for the fun of it...
