They do perfect sense and are absolutely necessary for programs, because 
by following the reference the translator can figure out the right 
substitution strings (%s) or can explain herself a cryptic message.

In our case, it makes no sense to do this, since the translator has the 
important information (whether it's a heading, a paragraph, unordered 
list, etc).

What is broken is that they will disturb the readers of www-commits and 
also the teams' lists (for those who use for no good 
reason.  They're just entirely redundant.

What for?  Why would anyone like to look at the HTML source?  I stopped 
doing it one month ago.  Also, this won't work for www-bg, because there 
won't be HTML files there.

All you need is PO; PO is all you need :-)

Anyway, let's do nothing and leave the item as it is (since it is a bug 
in my book); we'll poll the translators when they gain some experience 
with the new system.
