Comment (by TimothyBlynJacobs):

 This was discussed in #core-php,
 https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C60K3MP2Q/p1555512749148500, and it
 looks like the path forward is to add the check to not send the email on
 protected endpoints.

 In addition, the error template would be modified so that when on a
 protected endpoint to indicate to the user that they can check the admin
 email address for further instructions. The exact language to use is being
 worked on.

 ie going from `The site is experiencing technical difficulties.` to
 something like `The site is experiencing technical difficulties. Please
 check your site admin email inbox for instructions.`

 Importantly, this screen can be shown to any user, not necessarily the
 site admin themselves.
