There are several levels of administration:
top administrator - project administrator - aplication administrator - translator
Each of these have abilities to grant or revoke privileges on translating
application in their domain. No need for email traffic, everything is done
through web interface.

There is a per message review. We used it for lectoring some of the
applications. One can mark message as lectored. On each change to message,
lectored flag is removed, and it has to be lectored again.

Yes. There is a per project/user/application/custom_date_range type of
statistics, generated dynamicly from database, and also some statistics
generated only once in a while.

It shoudln't be hard, It actually was supported in early versions, but
nobody used it. I have a api for handling .po files, so it's only a matter
of parsing incoming emails.
