That is pretty much how it is going to work. You as upstream author submit a package version. It will have your initials. Other people patch it, their versions will have other initials. Then you can merge these changes upstream and submit a new version with your initials. But it's always possible to tell the difference between two versions, that's what Monticello was made for.

If there is someone volunteering as packager, sure. Maybe you are :)

I guess you can use some of the GNU gettext tools to split and merge translations as needed.
