Having translations in the first place makes people trigger, when I started the doc-nl project, there were translations in progress all the time and people got onboard because someone showed
an example. Currently Rene is keeping up the translations because I have severe time problems :) (like anyone); so the stick went on. If at some point Rene cannot keep up and I have issues
too, then the translations remain { Up to some point ofcourse } so that a new potential one can keep it up. If we were to remove those things, it would become impossible to keep it up, someone
has to start the translations from the ground up, which is an effort that not many people can and want to take { been there done it, got the translations ready! }
