hmm, I think the policy should depends on projects.
For projects which don't have active translations, I think it's OK to
For projects which have active translations, "Exception procedure" of
StringFreeze could help.
Translators need to be notified for the changes.

If you don't know whether the project has active translations or not,
"Exception procedure" can help, anyway.
