They are not thrown away.

The plugins page might allocate too much memory only in one special
case: non-English blog on a host with very low memory limit and with
tens of plugins with large translations. There are probably a dozen of
such installs in the world.

I wouldn't put too much effort to optimize that. I would find a way to
disable the meta-data translations in the edge case.

If you want to spend time on this, you are more than welcome. A
working patch will be gladly accepted. It just has to be
backwards-compatible (old style plugin headers), shouldn't put strain
on plugin developers (setting the meta-data two times) or translators
(having to translate PO file headers).

Happy hacking,
