      Description

      Context strings for localization are of uneven quality and purpose. These have been generalized for attributes (1395 context strings, actually attribute types), commonly used for instruments (354 context strings, actually disambiguation comments), and lesser used elsewhere.

      To address MBS-5380, it became clear we need to create guidelines for developers that write context strings, and document the reasoning behind it, in order to prevent unproductive back and forth changes of our i18n practices.
