These strings are not user visible.  They are informational strings for
developers.  Some projects split these entries off into their own separate po
files; we don't have any such infrastructure in place (should we?), so they land
in the regular po files.  These strings can be used to generate documentation,
but I don't recall the specifics of it.  Gary or Justin should know more about
this than I do.
