I have not followed the discussions so far in detail, but one thing I have 
missed so far (please correct me if I'm wrong).

IMO it should be possible to assign "ownership" for a specific translation 
to a specific translator. This owner should be able to control if he will 
allow modification of a translation by himself only, by a specific group 
of people ("authorized translators") or by all.
Of course, the owner can also be a group.

There are a lot of sensitive translations (because they have a very 
specific or technical context) for which you do not want just anyone to 
update translations.

It is important that such translations can be managed using the same 
infrastructure as other, more "open" translations as translators can 
still benefit from the other features of the infrastructure while working 
on a "closed" translation.

Note: this is a separate mechanism from review.
