I think this is really good.  Another thing to add to your list is that 
in addition to doing translation, people could also test drive localized 
versions of our things with their community.  "Mom, what do you think of 
this?" around the kitchen table, with the xx-YY version of Webmaker on 
the screen.  Having a way for people to bring back local and 
locale-aware knowledge and tell us what is wrong or odd would be great.

Create a really simple teaching kit for example that shows how to do this, and start engaging our transifex, Mozilla channels, etc, and perhaps even some incentives?  ie get your locale to 100% and everyone gets a hoodie, go from 0-hero and we’ll fly you somewhere, a message from mark, etc?
