 On `register_block_type` and block.json right now the languages folder
 path is not handled.
 This calls the `register_block_script_handle` function that just do :

         if ( ! empty( $metadata['textdomain'] ) && in_array( 'wp-i18n',
 $script_dependencies, true ) ) {
                 wp_set_script_translations( $script_handle,
 $metadata['textdomain'] );


 Since it's pretty common to change where the languages are stored into a
 folder, I think we need to :
 * Add to the block.json an entry to specify the languages folder
 * Impact this part of code and add maybe add filters
