The very basic idea is that we need a stable and an unstable branch for 
extragear anyway, and this for months or even years after the last KDE3 

So as the branches are needed and will be created, we can use it for something 

As for the translators, they do not need to concentrate on more than two 
branches if they do not want: KDE3 stable and KDE4 unstable.

But some translation teams want to work with unstable documentation 
translation, which are currently in trunk (with document source in 
trunk/KDE), despite being KDE3 stuff, therefore blocking KDE4 (even if it is 
not acute yet).

But may be I was not clear enough. My proposal is not a final plan, it is a 
plan to move forward. When KDE4 will be released, we can see what is the 
situation at that time and then close branches that will seem to be useless 
at that time.

Have a nice day!
