That's why might need a 'translation' tag so that translation teams can 
subscribe to the PTS for packages they translate and receive the 
'translation' bugs directly.

Currently, however, the DD does not always have to be the interface, that's 
what the PTS is for.
user -> BTS -> DD
            |
            .-> translation team

But having a 'translation' tag makes it easier to handle.

Then you should have asked in debian-i18n, not to the translation team. In
my opinion things that happened (like people starting to talk in french and
not Cc'ing you) were related to using the translation team address and not
the -i18n one.

It's not the only point, but, as the thread at -l10n-french (and the one at 
-devel) show you think it's a layout issue whileas the french team thinks 
it's a typographical issue.
