I'm using now the following method which uses the text
itself as key:

   <i18n:text>show statistics</i18n:text>

If you don't specify a default value for untranslated
text in the transformer's definition (map:transformers
section in the sitemap) then the text stays as it is.

Of course specifying a key (like in your example) is
also an option - just ensure that you don't specify a
value for untranslated text.
