Swedish title for Deathly Hallows novel

This is from Mugglenet.


Tilden, the Swedish Potter publisher, has revealed on their official website that JK Rowling has provided an alternative DH title to foreign countries: Harry Potter and the Relics of Death. The second title was released by Jo and Bloomsbury because the phrase "Deathly Hallows" is hard to translate without being able to read the novel.



This seems to support, in my opinion, my conjecture that Deathly Hallows means the Horcruxes. It doesn't actually say it, but if it isn't, then it means there is another set of nasty objects in addition to the Horcruxes.
