IMO it must also be possible for an application integrator to install
a package that selectively overrides the default translations.  How
can that be done?

At TOPP, when we used Plone 2 and PTS, we had a hack that allowed us
to do this, see
eg. https://svn.openplans.org/svn/sputnik/branches/0.9.8/sputnik/zinit.py
This allowed us to provide some different (english) translations for
the same message ids on two websites (openplans.org and
livablestreets.com), just by having the sputnik package installed on
one site.

So far, I've been unable to find a way to accomplish the same thing
with the zope 3 i18n infrastructure, which is blocking us from moving
to plone 3 on the site that needs the overrides. Is this even
