 > > Freemium plugins that include hundreds of hidden strings from the paid
 > There's also a question to be raised there, on if the plugin is
 arbitrarily restricting functionality behind a false plugin-as-a-service
 shield.  If the premium functionality and strings are included in the free
 plugin, but inaccessible due to an API turning it off (or turning it off
 by not returning enough data) that's AFAIK against the plugin guidelines

 It's a common practice to include in the free plugin a PHP file with just
 an array of all the strings of the paid version.

 We have seen that a lot of times in Elementor/Gutenberg "addon" plugins.
