I have prepared translation of FC4 Rel Notes into Russian.
And I saw that .po based translation does not works well because
some translations are context dependent.
The second reason for pure XML translation: currently I can not
successfully convert FDP xml files into .pot and back without
some works by hand.
But XML translation requires some additional steps like FC translation project do:
- pre commit check and XML validation
- some locking to prevent race conditions for translators
And one more question: how we will translate legal entities like copyright statements?

agreed. If you are using fedora then you have a common encoding UTF-8,
no convertion is made or needed. But someone uses windows...
I prefer po and we have cvs repositories to store po files. Then we
can just commit the xml files, as long as the tools that fedora-docs
promised are good enough (e.g. if I changed po slightly, the result
xml/HTML should not change tooo much).
