I am not sure that this topic has been brought up but I figured I mention it. I was watching the TED talk in which Luis gave in regards to re-Captcha's (link is below for those interested). Millions of people are translating words using re-Captcha technology, could this be used with duolingo? Currently the Immersion section and the language learning sections are separate, is it possible to combine the article sentences to learn new words?

You'll now see articles suggested to you after completing lessons as you progress through the tree and gather more language knowledge. Our algorithm suggests articles based on the concepts and words that you have learned through Duolingo. We're doing a lot of work to the immersion view, so expect to see updates soon.

Does this mean that, now or in the future, the skills tree can be be kept "up-to-date" by doing translation? That would be wonderful. If the tree didn't decay so quickly I would spend a lot more time translating.
