just to make it easier to translate it and maintain translations. At the
moment it reuqires a lot of work to merge changes in the original tips into
translations. We have been asked to change this if possible.

I'm not not exagerating. A typical tip consists of multiple lines (2 to 5)
and you can't translate them line by line. My typical emacs setup shows 
about 42 lines, while the typical distance between the original tip and the
translation will be around 40 to 100 lines with the solution you proposed
(not accounting for empty lines to achieve better readability). I don't
consider this a practical solution and I think Christian expressed the same
opinion independently of my mail.
