dpkg i18n going backwards?

Now in dpkg I found this:

dpkg: no, cannot proceed with %s (--auto-deconfigure will help):\n

Before there was something like:

dpkg: no, cannot remove %s (--auto-deconfigure will help):\n

This is going backwards wrt to i18n since one of the basic rules of i18n is to have complete sentences, while keeping the verb covered behind some parameter is not a good way of doing that.
