Using separate PO for this document is going to create a real ugliness
in our Makefile.  (We try and avoid exceptions since they make for
maintenance headaches.)  I've done some work on the relnotes Makefile
with the intention of moving it over to Makefile.common as soon as I can
make sure it won't hurt anything else.  It will replace the current
packaging crap that I wrote last year (apparently while napping).

If we want separate PO, a separate module would be preferable.  We can
have fedora-release-notes Requires: fedora-faq if we want to package it
separately.  If we want to just package them together, one PO only is
probably the name of the game.
