I'm not sure about the last thing. Message objects are bound to one
translation domain, so the translation will be looked up only for that
domain. However, we could provide some fallback translation domain as

I believe that it's often useful to have standard translations that
can be used out of the box and not making application developers have
to translate them every time. But it should be really easy for
applications to override them, so we'll have to work on that.
