 Replying to [ticket:3988 jonoaldersonwp]:
 > However, https://es.wordpress.org/plugins/bacon-ipsum/ also exists - but
 because it has not been translated, it is omitted from the translation
 matrix. It also has a self-referential canonical tag, and so now
 ''competes'' with other localised pages for this plugin.

 Could we perhaps set the canonical location to the english variant when
 the localised variant doesn't have any content translations?  If we were
 doing it all 'again' I'd probably have suggested having all non-translated
 URLs redirect to the main domain

 I'm not too fond of the idea of marking these pages as `en-$country` when
 it's a rosetta domain, but if it's really the only option to specify the
 content as being "different" than the w.org/plugins/ variant..
