Thanks, this is a great contribution. A few quick comments on the contents:

- It's good to reduce the number of files. Keep in mind, though, that in 
bigger teams the most convenient way to split work is by working on 
separate files. If we manage to have about 20 files total this should be 
OK for all teams.

- I wouldn't create UI and Help as two Pootle projects: it's very 
important that UI and Help translations are consistent. I understand, 
though, that some team will only translate the UI, so maybe it would be 
possible to have two different projects, so long as a volunteer can 
decide to work on Calc and easily identify Calc-relevant new strings in 
both projects.

- PO vs XLIFF is a very old discussion... PO is simple and text-based. 
It has limitations but it's very easy to work with, and in this phase I 
would privilege a low entry barrier.
