I remember we had a long discussion
without a definite outcome regarding the way we implement translations.
Some people were in favor of the wiki/dom/fr (for the French version of
wiki/dom), I (and I think others) was against that.
I think the unspoken conclusion was that we keep it this way (wiki/dom/fr)
for now, until we know more or something.

My preference was to handle it similarly to the way Wikipedia handles it -
using a sub domain for every language. fr.docs.webplatform.org for French,
or similar.
Perhaps we should revisit it?
