Your guess would be correct. If no match is made and there is no
localized content, then there is no match.

Again, you are correct. I believe we have a test for that:


I guess it would be of value to add  another example or two in the
spec. I will do that when we go to PR.

Thanks again for the feedback and for helping us improve both the spec

keep the feedback coming so we can fix that!:)
