1 big group will surely mean less work for all involved, it also means
more discipline for the translators/ language team leaders. :)

If I understand previous discussions correctly this has nothing to do
with the commit permissions (pushing translated files to svn).

For safety reasons (bus error) I suggest to go for 2 person management.
