To be clear: files at the TP are not public domain. Most are
covered by the GPL, a few by a BSD-like licence.

Correct. Many files at the TP contain a copyright line like this:
# Copyright (C) 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This means the FSF owns the copyright on the msgids. That this
copyright covers only the msgids is made more clear in the files
for which the FSF is not the copyright owner, as for e2fsprogs:
# Copyright (C) 2008 Theodore Tso (msgids)
For all PO files it are the translators themselves who own the
copyright on the msgstrs. In order to distinguish the author lines
from the main copyright line, they do not contain the "Copyright
(C)" string. But they have the same meaning. For example:
# Benno Schulenberg <benno (@) vertaalt.nl>, 2008.
