The point is that you can give the translation to the developer who
maintains the original version, so he can makes packages for it. That way,
your translation gets packaged quicker, the maintainer takes care it doesn't
get too outdated, and you don't have to go through the new-maintainer

It is how maint-guide* packages are done, too.

Not necessarily, but you do have to pass the lengthy new-maintainer process.
Read http://www.debian.org/devel/join/newmaint , it has all the details.
