yeah .ts does not have the extra information. Remember in .po the last translator is pr translation unit and not pr file or pr language and thus significant.
I do not need or care about that kind of credit, but you publish a list of active developers and I think doing something similar for translators is a motivation factor. However if it cannot be done easily and automatically it is not worth the pain.
Ps. I personally do not like lists that single out who did how much for a release, because they often show a distorted picture (see my participation in 4.8.1, which you correctly relativated), but I know from my mentoring jobs that many likes it, and thus accept it :-)
