I'd say fixing existing english strings (like, fixing typos or 
incorrect/outdated explanations of what a program does) can be considered 
bugfixing and thus should be allowed even though it implies changing i18n 

To avoid the usual "They changed stuff behind our back" threads on 
kde-i18n-doc, we could possibly use something like "Commit message fixes on 
Friday's only" again, which is IMHO a good compromise between the two 
arguments "Fix bugs in the user interface and documentation" and "Avoid 
duplicate work for the translation people.".

Perhaps a script could also instantly mark all message commits done on 
Friday's as "done" instead of "fuzzy" so that KBabel doesn't go all wild.
