oxygen decoration animations and string freeze exceptions

There are currently several bug reports/wish to add an "enable/disable 
animations" option in oxygen decoration configuration dialog for kde4.4 
because these animations significantly affect kwin performances for some 
graphics cards (not mine). See e.g.:


I added such an option in trunk, but backporting it in kde4.4 violates 
string freeze.

Aaron suggested that instead of violating string freeze one uses the 
settings "Graphical Effects" (in systemsettings->appearance->style->fine 
tunning). But as Martin (Graesslin) pointed out this is not satisfactory 
since the performances drop also have been observed in some High 
performance CPU/GPU (e.g. NVIDIA).

This to say, I'd really like to commit this simple "enable animations" 
option addition, especially since the exact same string already exists 
(in kde4.4) for oxygen style.

Is there any objection against this ? What's the procedure ?

I guess I can wait for e.g. one week for serious objections (notably 
from translators) against doing the above, and if none shows up, I'd 
just commit.

Does that work ?
