I think it would be important to make sure that these URLs do not change
after they are published for the first time, in order to make sure that
links to them still work at a later point. See [1] for more elaborate
arguments against changing URLs.

Being able to change (translated) URLs while also having the old URLs
redirecting to the new ones would be nice, but this seems like it would
actually be much more challenging to do with our current setup.

Is there a way in which to state that certain translations should only
be done once, and not change afterwards?
