I agree with this. Probably we do not need a strict rule of the
style of placeholders because it is mainly for the translators,
not for the readers. If we need to make clear which part is not
translated yet, keeping the "original revision" line suffices.
Probably we have no objection to that the translators can use
a placeholder when they want to commit a partly-finished
translation of large document in order to make it buildable.
Some styles are already suggested, but which should be used
is a bikeshed problem, I think.
