Rosetta Blueprint: Unifying Translations

Hello fellow translators!

I've been having many talks lately on how to unify translations across
packages for the same language, and I think, I've actually come up
with an idea that just might work.
Due to Rosetta's decentralized nature, it's pretty common for the same
word to be translated differently across different packages (or
sometimes within the same package), and some teams have come up with a
list of common translations they agree on, and maintain them all over
the place (wikis, mailing lists, etc).

I've drafted up a blueprint I think might take a step closer to
providing more unified translations across packages, and I wanted to
get some discussion going to find out if this would work for everyone.

The link is:

Feel free to edit/add to it, although I'd appreciate some discussion
before removing any parts of it.

Looking forward to your comments.
