That's fine and true when it's 1 form, 1 object, but a single view is at 
least 50 forms, most of them with no more than an item or two. Is that 
*really* the translation interface you want? The label I provide can 
lead you to the context, but without promoting stuff to a single level, 
I don't think translating a view directly in the form would be 
considered good UI.
