I'm afraid we can't be sure they're all improvements.
The first change to fr_FR I've found, I didn't check the others, did
overwrite an up-to-date translation with full coverage of one tool and
reduced its coverage.
This has lead me to become really cautious with the content of the
translation updates as far as fr_FR is concerned.
The fact that they were merged without asking the locale maintainers is
also a source of tension between translation maintainers such as the
fr_FR ones and well-meaning members who did the merges. I'm trying to
remove the tension while finding a solution that is approved by each
concerned locale maintainer.
While I don't mind the changes being in trunk right now, I do mind the
changes making it into a future release without having a chance of being
reviewed. Rolling back the changes to fr_FR and others locales whose
maintainers want to review the changes when they can, could enable
merging the changes to the other locales into 2.9.x.
I'm awaiting locale maintainers' opinions before we do anything, but
that's the idea I have.
