bug #56910: allow using without PO-Revision-Date

With ubiquitous version control, there are many workflows where PO-Revision-Date and Last-Translator are not useful. Moreover, PO-Revision-Date creates constant merge conflicts.

Please provide a mode where these fields can be omitted. This would mean primarily that msgfmt -c doesn't complain if they are missing, and that xgettext doesn't add them to the POT file. Perhaps there are more places.
