Nah, string freeze is exactly created for that purpose; so that we don't
have to deal with a moving target. Whether the branch intended for GNOME
2.2 development for a 2.2 core module is currently "HEAD" or "gnome-2-2"
or "whatever-branch-name" doesn't have much to do with it. If it's the
GNOME 2.2 development branch of a GNOME 2.2 core module it's supposed to
be string frozen. Even if that branch is HEAD at the moment since the
module doesn't have a "gnome-2-2" branch yet.

Again, there shouldn't be any unannounced changed messages in the GNOME
2.2 development branch for a core GNOME 2.2 module.

yeah, that's why it's useful with "gnome-2-2" branches, so that people
can start changing messages as they see fit (with maintainer's approval
of course) on HEAD again. But AFAIK we don't require anyone to branch.
In that case, the string freeze still applies to HEAD.
