I think this is desirable before 4.0.1 is released so that the 4.0.1 .pot 
file has these annotations and so the .po files the TP generates merged 
with the 4.0.1 .pot file have any problem translations marked fuzzy.  (I 
presume you've previously informed the translation teams of the problem 
translations you found; it might be worthwhile reminding them, with an 
indication of the timescale for the 4.0.1 release, so the translations 
with those problem formats can be corrected for 4.0.1.)
