You said that non-obvious string lacking context is a bug. I cannot
agree with this, becuase this context usually you can find in real
appliacation. If you would open translated programm and try to find
doubtful string/option, you would not need a comment for such string.

In my opinion, before start to translate application, each translator
should first learn it and if he still don't know a meaning of translated
string, then he should contact with developers or submit the bug report.
