Comment (by jonoaldersonwp):

 Worth noting that this might have some unexpected consequences; I know a
 number of sites/plugins/etc link directly to these types of URLs, in a way
 that currently assists discovery (and likely pass equity, despite the
 `noindex` status).

 Blocking access to and visibility of that completely will change the
 balance of power in the ecosystem; we should expect potential grumblings
 as plugin installs decline in some cases.
