"Do not invalidate translations" checkbox at [[Special:PageTranslation]] should be checked by default if change does not require updating translations
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Original bug title:
"Do not invalidate translations" checkbox at [[Special:PageTranslation]] should be checked by default if change does not require updating translations

(taling about "This page has changes since it was last marked for translation." where "marked for translation" points to the page with the translation units and diffs)

This happens e.g. if you change a variable:
text in translatable section <tvar>500</> -->
text in translatable section <tvar>501</>

*talking about

Seems to make sense: since bug 44328, the invalidation changed meaning and should now happen less frequently. One of the requirements for page translation, according to docs, is that the page has to be reasonably stable, so most changes to translation units are expected to be minor.
Reversing the default of the checkboxes would be consistent; the translation administrator will always need to use judgement of course.

Will not be prioritized, because I suspect this will be a,potentially vet difficult and complex algorithm, with relatively little value. Feel free to submit patches that we will happily review.
