I have been playing with intltool a little to see how it works.
Although it appears to work (when you add a dash of XSLT to mark the
elements that are intended for translation), a toolchain using intltool
would not preserve entity markings.  Instead, the translators would have
to retranslate a line if the entity value changed.  Obviously not
optimal.
