If you are concerned that translators receive automatic notification 
when a source debconf template has changed, that's an infrastructure 
problem.  Neither debconf nor gettext has automatic translator 
notifications built-in, and debconf's templates are not an inferior 
solution for not providing this.

Debconf, if used correctly, does correctly handle merging of outdated
translations.  See debconf-mergetemplate(1).
