[Mediawiki-i18n] Internationalizing MediaWiki: namespace strings

Is there any way to involve TranslateWiki in translated MediaWiki: 
namespace strings?

Sometimes things are translated via subpages, e.g. MediaWiki:Foo/fr, 
MediaWiki:Foo/de, etc. That works okay for static texts, but it's hard 
to know when or if we're missing a translation.

It gets worse on Commons where licenses are defined by 
MediaWiki:Licenses. Ignoring the "language hacks" that were done like 
"enownwork", this is really a data structure that has to be 
internationalized, and sometimes the different translations of the data 
structure get out of sync....
