For spell checking you can use pospell from the spellutils package:
	pospell -n filename.po -p ispell -- %f

But it's not optimal for me, too, cause it cannot handle utf8 files
correctly (german umlauts are corrupt).

Yes, that would be great. May I get that package per PM?

A possibility to check how your debconf templates file
look like in reality is podebconf-display-po from the
po-debconf package.
Try it, it's worth it!
