If a message is not to be translated at all, like the above, it should not
even appear in the pot/po files. It is confussing, most translators are
not programmers.

At least, add a comment for translator "do not translate" on each one.

Sure, but I do not know whether xml2po supports comments at all. This
must be reported upstream.

BTW, translators are able to learn :) And: If in doubt, do not
translate but keep it literally.
