@Legoktm, @Krinkle: I imagine we want to encourage gadget writers to use some sort of namespacing for their translatable messages (so that they don't collide with other gadget messages or MediaWiki software messages). Any suggestions regarding that? Maybe MediaWiki:gadget-foo-message? (For example, MediaWiki:gadget-hotcat-submit-button.)
@kaldari: Indeed. That should be the encouraged pattern. However I don't think we should enforce it by design since there is value in re-using core and extension messages as well. This is no different from other messages administrators can (and do) create for the sidebar and various other interface components.
In extensions we have conventions against re-use of messages but that's more viable there due to being backed by translatewiki.net. That isn't the case for gadgets.
