I don't think that this is possible. Whats the point of separate plugins
if all i18n strings must be in core VDR?

Distributions wont like that either: They like to have everything for a
plugin in one package, and no dependencies to the core VDR package.
Imagine that each plugin update would require a core VDR update to add
the missing i18n strings...

Maybe there's a way to merge all .po files into one for translators, and
split the results back to separate files for re-integration.
