Question which might be borderline but do not hesitate to tell me if there is
something wrong with the reasoning.

<p lang="en">
<span title="Organization for the human rights" 
      translate="no">Amnesty International</span>, 
in a report, said…

Automatic translation to French for example

<p lang="fr">
<span title=" […] " 
      translate="no">Amnesty International</span> 
a dit dans un rapport…

is title translated or not into "Organisation pour les droits de l'homme"?

and this might be even trickier with nested blocks where the parents has
translate="no". Think about images with an alt="" text in a block of text with
a translate="no". 

How is it done with the current choices and/or hacks mentioned earlier?

PS: not pushing back, just trying to see the consequences for each decision.
