sure, but i don't buy this as an argument:
- wasted work (= changed strings) sucks, but i value code/english
  message quality higher than traslators' mental health. same goes for
  serious bugs vs. "regular" developers, btw. :-P
  if you can't stand seeing some of your work wasted, you're wrong at
  open-source anyway.
- new strings are no argument considering the first paragraph; it's just
  a matter of starting this wonderful program three days before release
  and spending at most 10 minutes at translating a doozen new/changed
  strings resulting from bug fixes.

lukas' argument (last-minute availability of translators) is a more
serious concern ...

not that i18n would matter in this case at all, given ade's remark ...
