I can hardly see why this is a drawback.  You added support for a
separate po/LINGUAS file in 0.11, and it helped a lot.  Here you go
the opposite way, and I do not understabd why.  With your new scheme,
one has to re-run Automake and friends when a file is marked as
containing translatable strings.
Also did you talk to GNOME folks?  Intltool accepts some extra markup
in po/ (e.g. file type or encoding), and thus my guess is
that they prefer a separate file.
