 It may not be important for most, but it will be to some and being clear
 seems like a reasonable thing to do.

 Since mo's are still a support method of translating a plugin the
 directory should not make them a second class citizen when being displayed
 unless there's a good reason to.

 There will always be some authors that want/need to use another
 translation service, making sure they are included seems to make sense to
