Is it sufficient to have such a notice in the documentation of the L10N
infrastrusture (or on the main page, all pages, on mailing list
Maybe, but I'm not sure. Why take that risk?
Yes, this could be something that we could look at. Without yet being
sure, I beleive that it is probably not difficult to insert it in XLIFF
files or PO files (if it is a pointer to a website). The off-line
translation editor should be able to display the license.
Could the infrastructure insert a standard header for the translator
copyright notice(s) and put the work under the software's licence?
This could be a problem, if it is a requirement. In many case localisers
are not technical people, and this could be a strong barrier to usage.
For additional safety, can the infrastructure accept GPG-signed submissions?
