I think a WIP/XX branch is nessary in the early phase of new language XX.
If a contributor sent a pull request with a untranslated XX.po, and said,
"Please pull this initial commit to master branch, so that other contributors
may notice a team of XX already exists, and won't translate it twice."
It does make sense, but what if this contributor gives up at last for some
reasons, and left a zero translated XX.po in po/ directory?

Create a WIP/XX branch and merge it back to master branch when the
translation is 100% (or 90%) completed. The WIP/XX branch will be deleted
after that. The overall workflow does not changed, no extra work for l10n
teams, and leave po/README unchanged is OK.

Yes. I'm sorry about that. I think disallow new l10n support to the maint
branch and later rc phase will solve this problem.
