So it would help with debugging the translations, because even the developers using English locale would be running the translation code ... okay, you convinced me ;)
We should also add a "test" translation that replaces every letter with, e.g., "@" - that helps in spotting untranslated phrases.
Yes, let's get this in and re-enable the Transcript warning for translatedInAllDomains.
