Context for Welcome

In WP 3.3 there is one new occurence for "Welcome" string. But in some languages there is not only one ideal context for this word.

1) Welcome as a verb (suitable for Install screen).

2) Welcome as a noun (suitable for Screen Options, there are no other verbs).

I created basic patch to better explain this idea.

I believe "Welcome" on the welcome panel is an interjection, and "Welcome" in screen options is an adjective ("a welcome panel"), or possibly an abstract noun.

Either way, what about these for clearer contexts:

  • "Welcome", "welcome panel"
  • "Welcome", "hello"

  • Welcome in Screen Options is noun for us (best solution). Maybe there could be "Welcome panel" instead of simple "Welcome"?
  • Welcome on Installation screen is interjection (Hello).

There are other Welcome strings, but they are parts of sentence, so we can play with them. Main problem is differ Welcome (as Hello on Installation screen) and Welcome in Screen Options (noun).

In [19807]:

Provide contexts for a 'Welcome' string. Sometimes we're saying hello, other times referring to the welcome panel. props pavelevap, fixes #19698.
