 I've uploaded an initial implementation in
 51039.diff] to introduce an info notice whenever the locale isn't an empty
 string (en_US).

 For now I avoided the % as it would require updating the languages API to
 include that information which may be overkill. I also felt now that it's
 in a non-intrusive placement there's less point in suppressing it when
 we're at a translation threshold. It also means we can expand the
 messaging to indicate WP and plugins/themes so even translated locales
 realize they can still contribute.

 I pointed them to translate.wordpress.org for now, but potentially could
 direct users to their locale's space on translate.wp.org. Also on the link
 I opened in a new tab and provided the accessibility text, am unsure if
 that's desired.

 P.S. Thanks for sharing @joostdevalk that's an awesome little module.
