That should probably be pushed at least partly into the "Security
proposals for 9.1" talk -- unless you have a concrete proposal you'd
like to present? I don't have any specific ideas myself for security
other than that it should be very easy to *uninstall* the translation
pack (revert to a previous version?) if it turns out to be unhelpful.
The security considerations seem very similar to those for "activity
updates", which I've been twisting Michael's arm about.
