It's not useful to give causal contributors write access to 
translations: they usually don't know what writing style to follow and 
don't know the correct terminology. This will only mess up things or 
give more work to do to the translators. Please don't let submit rights 
to non-logged users.

I think it can work. Better yet: back in OOo days various teams were 
able to choose between pootle or direct SDF submission (as Claudio 
said). Maybe in this phase of reorganization it would be helpful for the 
teams to choose their preferred method.
