+1, not requiring 100% UI (which is quite easy to do for any translator) is
a dangerous path.

Nobody can today say when we do the next major release (5.x) meaning
translations < 100% could be ongoing for a long period. For a minor
release, its typically only a handful of messages that are changed, so it
not a big workload for any individual.
