While I favour changing the import flag given your explanation, I am
really trusting your expert opinion.

I am interested to know how an upstream project enables this feature. Is
      * Automatically enabled when a po dir is detected in a development
      * Or does the project owner/Ubuntu contributor need to enable
        synching on the series? (This is what happens now).

I think there is some confusion for project owners regarding enabling
translations for the project, and enabling syncing for the series. Does
this feature complicate this matter further. I think I, as a project
owner, would like a single page that allows me configure the project and
the series to bring context to the actions.
