Rosetta already does this. A code comment next to a translatable string
is shown directly underneath the string in the translation interface
(next to an (i) icon).

Yes, please give your templates useful descriptions. No need to say
"This is a template is for program Foo", because the interface already
shows that. Instead you can have descriptions like "Program Foo is
intended for lawyers, so consult a legal dictionary if unsure of the
terms you're translating."
Agreed with the other ideas.
