just an idea, but basically google could in theory check sites that cloak by comparing it with a normal google ip, and their Google Translate ip's. Any site that 403's google translate = instant red flag, and then result in a manual review by Mr. Cutts and thte Big Spam Team.

What if I simply don't want my content to be translated? whats there to flag?

Wouldn't it be easier for them to pretend to be someone else ... or use an IP from one of the numerous businesses they've acquired? And who's to say they aren't already doing it?

i'm sure google already checks for ip cloaking, but the major issue is user agent cloaking, which they also check for.
