Yes, and this is exactly my example. Imagine you have two translators 
into Arabic, skyray1 and xyz.

1. User skyray1 enters suggestions, deliberately keeping them as 
suggestions (for the reason above).

2. User xyz reviews them and tells (by e-mail) skyray1 to go ahead (and 
let's say he leaves the final acceptance to skyray1, as skyray1 has best 
knowledge of that set of strings).

3. At this point, skyray1 goes back to his own suggestions and accepts them.

This is a reasonable workflow used by Pootle teams, and step 3 explains 
why it is useful to have this. It if still doesn't make sense to you, 
this is still the way other teams work, so there is no reason to break it.
