   Yes, #translatedNoop is just marking string as translatable and let
GetTextExporter2 extract the string to POT.   Actual translation occur
only in #translated.   See "4.7 Special Case of Translatable Strings"
in http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/gettext.html.

   The crazy idea was ...
   Currently method body of #translatedNoop is empty.  But in the
method translation domain for the string could be decided with sender
of #translatedNoop and could be stored in receiver string.
