Yes, that would be nice to have more documentation on this topic.

I'm not sure how useful a custom TER would be. I assume only bigger 
agencies would use one and these agencies would have a deployment system 
based on a VCS anyway.

Having the possibility to access different translation servers for 
different extensions I consider to be very useful.

My idea is to have some kind of registry which stores URLs to a 
translation server for each extension (with a fallback to a default 
one). It should also be possible to mark certain extension to not have 
any translations so that no translation server is accessed for these.
