Yes, this sure is a point. Other point is however, to eliminate possible
error source which is to enable translators to update the changelog, which
can be often forgotten.

They _may_ be changed without updating the revision date, but shouldn't
be. The only case when the PO-Revision-Date is not changed and which is
 ok this way is when the .po-files get msgmerged with updated templates. 

So, do you say hereby, that this functionality is not needed at all?
