Would the CCD-shift mechanisms fare better for translational
movement, such as the Sony a100?

I know nothing of the design of the Sony. However, for non-macro photography, the angular motion would be the largest factor in producing blur by quite a margin.

Another issue in macro work is that the depth of field is so small; any camera motion along the camera-subject axis will affect teh critical focus. VR will also not deal with this. My solution is to use a tripod for all macro shots (a monopod might also help in pursuit of fast bugs).
