Make ∅∅∅ useful

Description (last modified by mark) (diff)

We spent a lot of effort to implement ∅∅∅ in the survey tool. But it still isn't really useful, and it complicates matters (probably involved in some UI hiccoughs we see. So we should either:

  1. Retract it.
  1. Make it work
  1. Determine exactly where we want to allow it to be used, and have a method call for that. However, we ONLY want to allow its use in very limited cases, NOT use in general. Translators should not be able to use it for date fields ("am" or "March"), for language/country/script names ("English"), units ("kg"), etc.

We want to allow its use in alt=X forms in general (but there may be some exceptions), and in language dialects (en_US) [replacing what is in http://unicode.org/cldr/trac/ticket/9474], some relative forms ("pre-yesterday"), and so on. But only in such specified cases.

  1. Where it is allowed, have an easy way to vote for the value, by listing it directly as one of the alternatives (with a hover to explain usage).

∅∅∅ should definitely be usable for imperial units (with the singular exception of inch to the power of one).

PM BRB: Don't see a high need for this. Considering the time frame, pushing to 33.
