Gettext's fuzzy matching could be used here (like on a per-template 
basis), but that is is bad, mmmkay? :P
However, your translations are not lost:
click the "Translation details" link, then on the "filter" link besides 
the translator names under "Contributors to this translation". You can 
add &batch=300 to the end of the address, so you can see more of the 
existing translations, including obsolete ones. For example, in 
ubiquity-debconf, my old translations are marked by a ~: 
 From this point, copy-paste is easy - I do this whenever they correct 
some typos in the ddtp templates :).
