Hum. Good point. In fact, I removed it on purpose, but I am unsure this 
was the best thing to do.

My reasons to remove it were the following:

1) I am using RCS myself to follow on the revisons of the French 
   version. Each time I do a "ci -l" (checkin-checkout), the $Id$ tag is 
   replaced by my own revision information.

2) When I will update the French page, I'll work on the French page and 
   check in parallel the original page. Thus nothing ensure I will not 
   forget to copy the $Id$ tag from the original man page to the French 
3) The revision should be given by the man page publication date 

If you feel that the man page date is not enough to convey the full 
revision information, I will try to include a literal copy of the $Id$ 
tag (without the $$ to ensure it is not overwritten by own revision 

I am also having a look at po4a, which might provide a way to better 
handle this issue (it would solve point 2):

I will do it, no problem.

Thanks !
