Small fix. The link seems to be not working,
so I think it should read as follows:

Yes, it's a good idea.
Feature like "Search for <USER> translations." could be useful
even for the particular <USER>.

For translators, I think it could be nice to see
what percent of translations made by particular user have been approved
and what discarded.

Then, particular user may be interested what translations have been
approved in place of those he made.
Case study:
I translated "some_string" to polish language.
After a few days I see, my translation is marked as discarded.
Now, I would like to be able to see translation that has been choosed in
place of mine by clicking e.g. "See replacement" or "See approved string".

Some ideas of general Rosetta features:

What about advanced searching function in Rosetta?
I mean, I'd like to be able to search for some string for particular
application e.g.

Select application: gThumb
Search for string: "About gThumb"

Now, Rosetta displays all strings containing "About gThumb" phrase.

Another feature I'd consider as useful is CVS/SVN/Wiki-like changeset.
I mean, I'd like to be able to see the history of changes
and to see list of changes included in following commits.

This idea is splendidly implemented by Edgewall Trac

And here are detailed features:

1. Example of idea behind the timeline:

2. Example of idea behind the changeset:

So, I see some of Trac's features as very interesting.
Finally, it could be a combination of
Wiki + Rosetta + Version Control System
