If we take all this seriously (and I don't necessarily want to say we 
have to), then, since the body responsible for the legal side of all 
this is OSMF and OSMF cannot possibly check every language all the time, 
I guess that there would have to be some disclaimer at the end of all 
legal-related translations saying that the translation is given on a 
best-effort basis but where uncertainties arise, the English version is 
the binding one.

Then again I don't know if that's legal, ouch.
