Sorry, I forgot to point out (though it might be obvious) that the
don't-bother-translating-all-status-bits-to-English and the
show-general-status-temperature-with-color are, in my mind, related. Native
readers can parse the details of the status in the table's text. Others
(like me) can take a quick glance at the colors on the table and see basic
"Lots of red" -- not much going on here.
"Lots of green" -- wow, they're getting close to completion!
"Greens and yellows in the first column, reds in the second" --
translation is going well, but they've not done much verification
That kinda stuff.
