Personal response:  

In example 22 Translatability expressed globally, you are still applying a
yes setting to something that would be translatable anyway!  Just change yes
to no, and that example would look better, and make sense too - ie. don't
translate code elements.


I never understood why 'motherboard' in example 23 should not be translated.
How about using this (real) example:

<p>Click Resume Button on Status Display or  
    <hardpanelmsg its:translate="no">CONTINUE</quote>
    Button on printer panel
    </p>
