For large translation projects such as debian-installer, I assume it's
always possible for the maintainer or tranlation coordinator to use a
local new version of gettext, generate the history-aware PO files, and
after the translation is finished, revert the PO files back to a format
compatible with old gettext (say, strip all the "#|" comments) so that
it builds fine.  Is that the case?

Sure, it's more work, but for debian-installer (especially level 1, as
we are using different PO files for translation and building anyway) it
may be worth it.
