Well for writing code exactly, we often rely on commit messages
of the past, which is not available to users of the po tool IIUC.
Sometimes we have commits rewording the Documentation to
point out a subtle detail. Specifically for these changes
it would be good to have the reason for the change in Documentation
available for translators.
