Yeah, to me these are bug fixes. i18n is of great importance during the
stable release process, so we should do what we can to make that happen.

Well, this string freeze affects all of 2.0.x. Any fixes that require string
changes must be confirmed by the i18n and release teams. However... I think
that adding messages that were looked over or forgotten is perfectly okay,
as long as the i18n team has time to handle them.

The schemas additions are a pretty big example of this, unfortunately. ;-)
