I think, this mostly applies to me :-). I will test the toolchain and report
back as soon as possible. I see the following steps in the doc translation

1) Docs are changed in the english version
2) A doc.pot file is updated from the new docs and checked into say
3) Doc translators update their doc/Languages directory
4) Using poEdit, doc translators update their .po file from the current pot,
translate and check in (or send to the patches list)

Doc Translators will need the xml2something stuff only if they want to build
their language helpfiles themselves (for testing purposes)

Leave them emptly, because...

... It'll default to english.

Yes, that's the idea. Structural changes immediately go into each language,
there's no need for the translators to work on that. The only drawback is
that translators work out of context in poEdit, so you should have a current
version of the english docs at your side while translating.
