Sorry to reply to myself -- docs-common entities are *NOT* required for
the Release Notes.  They are required for other documents, but there are
no entities in the Release Notes being drawn from the common pool.  This
is because the Release Notes content is created by converting over the
beats from the wiki.  If translators do not translate the docs-common
entities, there will be no harm to release notes.
