One example when updating Qt Creator 4.6 to 4.7:

         <source>Saving Trace Data</source>
         <translation type="vanished">Gemmer spordata</translation>

         <location line="+161"/>
         <source>Saving Trace Data</source>
         <translation type="unfinished">Gemmer spordata</translation>

It just seems like the string have been moved but remains the same.
So i would not think adding type="unfinished" could be nessasary.
It just makes translators have to check something that they have already
