Yes, I'm hesitant to do that because it would slow down build a lot.
Do you think I should?

No -- I set it to DELETE_ON_ERROR, otherwise there will be a crap file
left around if you build again without building clean, it will see the
.mo file or whatever and continue merrily.  The intermediate files you
mention are left around because they themselves do not have an error.

So this is all by design!
