Legal risk is different from PR risk. We shouldn't mix them.

Even in this case you'll probably get both.

It is probably going to rain tomorrow too.

And exactly how a software project (composed mainly of people that chose
tech over literature or law) and chose a license in its own language
(presumably because they didn't feel confortable with English) is going
to produce anything but a random translation? Especially if you tell
them it's not binding?

How exactly are people who choose technology over literature or law even going to write a proper license in their own language? If you want good licenses in any language you need to talk to a lawyer. So that's the process they need to follow.
