There are two possible ways to deal with the list of translators as I see it:
1. to collect the names from the .po file headers, which are filled, AFAIK, automatically by Transifex;
2. to omit this list (just like it is done now), naming the authors only.

Should the revision history be necessary, its module should miss Transifex and it's in the bag.
