That would be the only technical way to make a branch indeed.

The "right way" is not to care about updating the pot files before
PLIP's are merged.

All messages are extracted automatically anyways and should only be
exposed to the translators once the corresponding PLIP is approved and
merged. You can run the i18ndude extract on your branches and see if
they pick up all messages correctly - just don't commit it.
