The page:
  http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Interwiki_map
states:
  "Remember to specify why the prefix would be useful on a significant number
of pages on Wikimedia Foundation projects."

Why is this prefix considered 'useful'?

It is not clear why such a 'significant' prefix is allocated to a company whose
site does nothing when the prefix is used.

Surely it would be reasonable, as a condition for the granting of a prefix, to
require that the site to which the prefix points ALWAYS provides a meaningful
message when it is (probably inadvertently) used, and when there is no other
meaningful content to return.

The message could be something like:

"You have activated a Wikimedia prefix for a site which has nothing useful to
return for your search request. For further information see:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Interwiki_map";
