It's your decision, of course, but I don't think these reasons are grave 
enough to prevent inclusion of po-mode.el in Emacs.  Texinfo Mode has the 
same status: it's documented in the Texinfo manual and needs programs 
from the Texinfo package to be fully useful; and yet it is distributed as 
part of Emacs.

The important consideration (IMHO) is that, while po-mode.el could be 
useful with Emacs but without gettext, it is useless with gettext but 
without Emacs.
