That would make it impossible to change strings.

1) kde 3.2 is released with some string "foo"
2) koffice 1.3 is released
3) kde 3.3 is released, "foo" is replaced with "bar"
4) koffice 1.3.1 is released

Now there is no way someone could upgrade koffice without upgrading to kde 
3.3 also, just because of string changes. Doesn't work, I'm afraid :-(

If a package is released separately, it needs it's own i18n module.
