Wouldn't it be better to have a translation specific describing the 
plural form instead of specifying it each time. Something like:

/// Polish
DIAG(diag,"%0 %plural{form0|form1}0");

/// Polish
DIAG(diag,"%0 %plural{form0|form1|form2}0");

for exception, we could style use your %case specifier.

just my 2cents
