I think splitting will increase complexity both for devs and translators.
Also IMO we still have number of unsolved problems with Transifex:
 - irregular updates (now github and Transifex not in sync)
 - losing old string versions when offline workflow used
 - it is impossible to detect changes when offline workflow used, so
   one should check every file for updates.

So, -1 from me to put GUI translation to Transifex.
