standard reply. :)
two things come to my mind:
- having deprecation warnings in our own code looks unprofessional. well,
  any warnings do, but this case is extreme, as it is self-imposed, so
  to say.
- how much does it "hurt" the translators actually? i mean, if it means
  more than starting "the universal kde translation app", seeing some
  untranslated messages at the top, doing the modifications and pressing
  the "commit modified files" button, then something is wrong.
  fwiw, i could not care less for _these_ new strings not being
  translated in time ...
