[wp-hackers] Language packs for plugins

I'm trying the current status of language packs for plugins - 
particularly, how WordPress and wordpress.org are handling the removal 
of translations from plugin downloads themselves, to shrink their size.

I noticed that WooCommerce had removed their language packs from their 
plugin. But, https://github.com/woothemes/woocommerce/issues/5485 seems 
to indicate that they built a custom solution for this inside their plugin.

So, I think that currently WordPress doesn't yet support unbundling of 
language packs for plugins. From Google, there seems no new information 
on this idea in the last year, as far as plugins go (core now has a 
solution) - is this correct? Anyone know if/when this might change?

Best wishes,
