1.) the ddtp server don't check the translator bevor accepting it
1.a) if I have add the review process in the ddtp server, it will
     check it in future

2.) If you like to get a package without a reserve, you can use the
    web interface on ddtp.debian.net

this is right too. 

all(?) dpkg/apt frontends use the package description / translation
without any wrapping/changing/... The translator and the package
maintainer must make the wrapping.
