Publican combined PO files like install-guide

I would like to find a way to make the translation of the large PO file
of the install-guide suitable for teamwork. So far, my idea is to get
the translators download the small PO-s from the repository, then merge
them into the large combined PO.
For example: The translator downloads the
Account_Configuration-common.po file from;a=tree;f=hu;h=704e7397f6c7da2200a0762bbeac76df338a21fa;hb=f11-tx
translates it, sends it to the maintainer, who merges it like this:

msgmerge -C Account_Configuration_common.po \ install-guide.pot \

This can be repeated for several PO-s from different translators, and
then the large PO can be uploaded via Transifex.

The small PO files can also be extracted from the large combined PO as

msgmerge -C /dev/null \
Account_Configuration_common.pot \

What do you think about this?
Would this kind of functionality be useful in Transifex? I mean download
a partial PO generated from a combined PO, and upload a partial PO
merged into a combined PO.
