Makes sense.

This is the best solution if you want to store the most important
comments on single page. The bug 36874 already is too long, so I suggest
to leave it closed. It did his job and fixed 80% of labels...

Alternatively, you might create wiki page for this "feature" and
describe the status and solution there.

This is the best place if you get into troubles with implementation and
need hints from other developers.

If you want to discuss the UI design, you might want to add
libreoffice-ux-advise at lists.freedesktop.org into CC.

IMHO, it is nice to have but it is not worth to spend too much time with
it. If the solution is good, it will stay as is. If there are problems,
they will get solved as they come. Your proposal is definitely an
improvement and most people will like it.

Yup, it makes sense. You might ask on l10n at global.libreoffice.org
mailing list for help with translations.

Thanks a lot for working on it.
