Comment (by tobifjellner):

 This is a tricky one. The gettext structure needs to regard everything
 that has to be translated as being from one and the same language all over
 a page. Core uses en_US, so programmatically per definition, the source
 language is always en_US, regardless of which language it's actually
 written in.

 Perhaps a nice feature would be a batch program that might take your it_IT
 plugin and a po-file it_IT---en_US and quickly:
 - Update your plugin/theme to en_US by applying all translation.
 - Create an it_IT translation by turning the po "upside down".
