Hear, hear.

I really believe that we will need an update.1.1 for Mongolia, so I
(for one) would not be sad to see the Mongolian translations not make
it for update.1.  By the time we can solve the networking issues for
Mongolia, we should have translations well in hand as well.

Mongolia will likely not get updated again until there is another
opportunity to use the bulk multicast update technique again, so it
doesn't make too much sense to rush the Mongolian translations.
