If I am not mistaken, there actually _is_ a review system in the email
approach, at least it was there in the old days too.

I've heard that often enough, practise though shows that this doesn't
hinder anything, at all. Additionally, like said multiple times, mostly
everything is anonymous and additionally not possible to figure out who
did do the bad translations to be able to either send them hints or take
a look at what other mistakes a person might or might not have done, to
track down patterns an the likes.

That is totally missing the point because that only checks for picking
up the format of the original description (which sometimes makes sense
to not follow, see various threads that French translators fought with
package maintainers that wanted to force them using specific list
formating instead of floating text enumerations). It can't be considered
by no proper means to allow QA and wouldn't catch at all grammar issues.

No, they aren't. Never were, never will be.
