Gathering the material from experimental is already possible for the i18n
scripts (i.e. the one generating http://i18n.debian.net/material/)
It would also be easy to generate statistics from the experimental
distribution (i.e. the same statistics as in

However, translators usually use (and should use) the pages such as
It would be more difficult to merge there the information from experimental

I've seen experimental used by some maintainers to start packaging a new
upstream version while the branch in unstable still evolve for a long
time, and where the translatable content in experimental is not ready at
all (and not really taken care of at that time).

Another idea could be to indicate (with a small character/icon) in the
pages like http://www.debian.org/international/l10n/po-debconf/fr that an
experimental package (with an higher version) exists with an incomplete
translation (and the package would be raised in its list, as are the
packages with errors currently).
This would let the final decision to a human being, which would make me
more comfortable currently.
