I believe I'm the person who updated the POT, but I thought I was
giving translators early content to make sure they were able to work
as long as possible on the correct content.

Are you saying that updating the POT files destroys your previous
work?  I thought that the update would simply mark new strings that
have changed a little bit as fuzzy.  Does this really require that
work stop?  Don't translators have a way of getting the updates
without destroying their existing work?
