 wp.org is not by any means a suitable candidate for testing, and not
 representative of the types of sites which should be relying on core

 Right now, we're experiencing errors and warnings in Google Search Console
 as a result of providing erroneous/incorrect sitemaps. We're providing
 incorrect signals to search engines about the structure of our content and
 sites, lowering trust in our sitemaps, and harming our SEO. This needs to
 be addressed as a matter of urgency.

 If we're expecting this feature to be disabled in the near future (by
 Jetpack), then there's even _less_ reason to disable it now.
