there is no obligation to translate the LTS branches, though it is
certainly welcomed. and because the merge scheme is as you described,
you can't really revise the decision to skip an older version.
(translations are an exception here - other modules cherry-pick to the
LTS branches).

there isn't really much to do in the first place ...
you do the translation for 5.6, have it integrated. then a forward merge
happens (it's trivial, because there isn't actually anything to merge),
and the translations show up in the 5.9 template, which you can start
working on now. and so on ...
