zanata-cli does not look outside of srcdir. So the solution would be target
whichever directory that is in higher structure.
I think your solution is the best approach so far to solve this issue.

The renaming of files will definitely lose their translation content
(Zanata will mark the document obsolete).
If renaming of files happens, then we will need to do zanata:pull, rename
all files and zanata:push as you suggested.
This process shouldn't be a problem if there's constant syncing of
translation files (as backup) and we can always attached the last pulled
translation files.

>From Zanata point of view, there is actually a feature to copy translations
however I don't recommend to use it unless you're really sure.
