The diff is not always available (there can be multiple reasons for this), so it cannot be relied on. If fuzziness is caused by warnings those warnings should be visible. Otherwise generic warning can be displayed.

Indeed. As it happened at the Translation session at Wikimania'13, when the message was once created (or it was a revision before the next one), then changed (+ marked fuzzy), and then reverted back to the state of the previous revision (in the list of revisions 1 (original), 2 (changed), 3 (same as 1)), there can be a case when nobody unfuzzied the message btw revisions 2 and 3. After that, we still have a fuzzy revision 3, as well as a blank diff.

The bot (or whatever marks the messages as fuzzy) can be coded for that, but it would not be a one-liner, of course. Not a ten-liner, maybe. :)
