I'm not happy to hear about (B). I have already translated hundreds
and hundreds of such string and I don't:
-- want to trash my work
-- The reading is very interesting (and sometimes only reasonable explanation,
   what plug-in does), that there is good reason to have it

I have one idea: make another po (or other) file and move traslations there.
But it requires extra code for switching between two catalogs.
Translators will first translate gimp-std-plugins and then, when
they have enough effort, can translate gimp-pdb.
