The mechanism for fallback languages is already here. This is one of
the fields of languagelist in localechooser:
However, experience has shown that these fallback languages are
usefule for very few languages and, sometimes, things that sound like
a good idea initially turn out to be confusing to users (e.g. using
Russian as fallback for Ukrainian, or things like this...).
And, guess what, even this can lead to political-style problems...
So, well, the fallback language is a possible option in a few cases
such as Northern Sami above....but this is not a definitive solution
for most of the currently incomplete languages ?
