You will forget your PO when you are translating a complete page and
you need the context of the first paragraph to translate the 4th para.
or when you realize that in your language you better place the 3rd
para before the second and take the last line of the 3rd para as first
line of the 2nd para. Something which happens all the time in full
text translation of larger docs.

Anyhow, nobody will ask you to use this or that method. When the time
comes I count on all of you to look at the options and then I tell you
what to use :) No, kidding !
