A smart auto-wash? (was: washing and `article-translate-strings' in what hook?)

Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.2.50 (darwin)
More generally, I find I am constantly fiddling around with articles in
Gnus to get them to be truly readable. *Many* need `W-Q'. The ones that only
read well as HTML need `K-b K-v'. I found one today that was garbled
without `K-m', which I had to find by experimentation. Has anybody
written a smart washer that figures it out for you 99% of the time?
