Yes, that is a serious drawback of using PO files.

What does this have to do with debian-boot?
We never _send_ po files to be translated...

Also, a practical problem is that you cannot create one diff for all 
translations as you don't know if all translations were up-to-date before 
the call to translations.

IMO this is something that can only be done reliably by individual 
translators themselves.
