I mean, it's the one that came out on March 31, 2005, or almost 5
months ago. If it wasn't that urgent at that time (or during the
remaining 4 and a half months), is it really urgent now?

My suggestion would be to leave them untranslated at this time. If it
wasn't important till now, I guess we can live with them being
untranslated for another release. That way, you get Unicode 4.1
support, yet no string freeze breakage.
Christian Rose may have a different opinion, though.
(And I'm not sure if this doesn't break the feature freeze either, but
I'm not going to play a policeman here :)
