Hmm, perhaps is better to have "no translation" for some items.

lowered the amount of incorrectly “translated” icons, it has not stopped

Copy or left empty should be fine. Main issue is why those items are listed in "translation" sources?

Every release someone (developer, maintainer, or usually me) has to
manually fix numerous translations to not point to non-existent files.

I wonder how someone could find "non-existent files" in not yet installed or even not prepared for build project.

There must be a simple way to clean (ignore) some items. Neither developer, maintainer, build engineer and etc. is responsible to do this.

Please take into account translation to be externalized to the project or package.

Let package is distributed without translation and let user decide to use localization in language X.

I don't know what is expected functionality for "desktop"-files.

There should be a generic way to inform translation module to exclude some items.
