One solution would be to use an intermediate repository where both you
and transifex can have access to. Some free hg solutions include
hg.fedorahosted.org, bitbucket.org and freehg.org.

We're currently doing that for Transifex itself. Whenever I add a new
string, I do the following:

 - Pull from downstream
 - Merge
 - Commit
 - Add new strings
 - Commit
 - Push to both

I guess that translates to something like "we're string frozen until
we sync again with downstream". The trick is, of course, to remember
to do that whenever you change your strings. I'm not sure if there is
a hook in .hgrc that tracks .POT and raises a warning or something if
changed.

Alternatively, one could add a hook that right after a commit it
issues a pull, merge and one hook for push to changesets to both
repos.
