I've now cleaned up the page.

The reason why we want to break up individual bullet points into 
translation units is that otherwise translators may end up with a giant 
pile of text in a single unit. It's not very fun trying to wrestle that 
in a small text box in the translation interface.

If there is ever a problem with the <translate> tags, Save Changes will 
point out the area that has the problem (while blocking you from saving).

One bad habit we have to kick for release notes pages is the use of 
thumbnailed images with captions. Unfortunately this breaks our newly 
acquired mobile friendliness. Instead we should use <gallery> elements.
