I guess changes in quotation marks ('→" "→ˮ) inside of text strings
would fall into category 3)?
Either translators will have localized them («french quoted text») or
they're fine with what's already there.
One frequent case for category 4): When there's a typographic symbol
like an ' (apostrophe), which may not be used at all or is used very
differently in the target language; I don't count anymore all the
fuzzies I've had because someone corrected "it's" to "its" or vice versa
(and in my language we don't use these). Of course more serious
spell-checking in source could possibly alter the conveyed meaning for
translators, thus it could be justifiable to make things fuzzy in that case.

Some thoughts for guys capable of implementing. Of course, I have no
idea whether any of these are feasible.
So, change in English string (tEh original) brings some checks with the
1) capitalisation changed? set flag 1
2) shortcut markup changed (like _ to &)? set flag 2
3) typography changed (like ... to …)? set flag 3
4) something else which nobody in the world *needs* to react to?
Then, the flags for the strings are checked against the matrix of
'action values' for those flags and languages.
'ru', caps=no_reaction, shortcut=autochange (change just the marker in
the translated), typography=autochange (no error if there's no
corresponding), words_changed=react (!)
No 'criticality' in the matrix means the new original is set with the
'NONCRITICAL' (not FUZZY!) flag (needs to be implemented, at least in
the online l10n system?). The team would wish to see and check those
changes, after all.
And even one 'criticality' sets the FUZZY flag, etc.
