A possible solution I come up with which does not involve any change in 
Drupal core:

  - I need to create a custom install profile (locale is not enabled
    by default anyway)

  - I need to create a custom module, and let this module get installed
    as the last one. This module would import .po files in it's _install()
    hook. This module would also alter the module enable/disable form
    to point it's action='' to a custom URL handler. That handler would
    do everything which is done by the module enabler/disabler, but
    would also import the po files along the way. So this module should
    also have a high weight (to alter the form at latest time possible).

Well, this might not be the most ideal solution, but we could easily 
bundle such a profile with Drupal core translations. If we have the same 
module name in all translations, adding another translation to the profile 
would work nicely.
