Another example for whole pages not to be translated are translations. If you
have a multilingual site, you want the translation from the original source,
not from other translations. In machine translation we all had fun with
circular translations, did we not? Something like
English-French-Spanish-English to see if we could find some traces of the
original meaning. A machine translated page would definitively set the
translate attribute to "no" for the whole page.
