I suppose some tool--at some point of a localization process--may find useful
to turn off contenteditable if translate is false.

But I don't think a translate=false implies contenteditable=false all the time.

For example, the author of the source text may still need to edit the content
of an element that is not meant to be translated (e.g. some legal blurb, or
some country-specific information, or some command line example)
