Maybe we should turn the system around, so our

this seems a lot easier than trying to manage the admin community
That's an interesting proposal.
How about this: Keep uploads at Commons, but automatically tag the
image description with a (hidden) category of the interface language
used on the upload page (except maybe for en)? That would allow for
* determining the language to use when contacting a user
* subgroup/filter images (e.g. all deletion requests uploaded in Swedish)
Should be easy enough to incorporate into the software. Initially, we
upload form anyway...
