We are indeed aware of these discussions and I'm in the process of
establishing a uniform rule for specific type of non-TR documents
(e.g. tutorials) so that translating those documents is as easy as
translating TRs (not technically, but process-wise).  Hopefully
the IPR FAQ would be modified to make such translations easier
in the near future.
