I was more thinking of Finnish team's situation where there aren't full
team to back things up but just a head translator. Tagging those docs
that _are_ up-to-date as non-official will just scare more people away.

Yeah, I remember GLEP 10 faintly, the problem of whole GLEP is that it
has no actually merits IMO. It just suggests something that might be
done to improve something, yet even without describing how it would
improve. AFAICT it doesn't help at all with linking things but makes
just some more work for even the current stuff.

The whole GLEP seriously rethought and rewritten might cut it, but it
again requires someone to do it :-)

Nah, we'll just define some absolute value that is fully arbitrary and
stick with. Like those already in doc-policy.
