This one I wasn't quite decided on, for exactly the same reason why
you said "Not sure".  I am inclined to merge it to 'master' at this
point, as it indeed is a risk to keep it enabled.

The only remaining question it raises is if it makes it worthwhile
to add another rc; it introduces one new localizable string, too.
