We could perhaps add an empty "non" locale just to specify the fallback to nn, so that they get loaded in such cases (basically only Babel). Opinions?

Can we agree on these:

  • Babel should be able to reflect language capabilities even in languages that are not in Name.php - most notably in wikis hat deliberately choose to not support all languages that MediaWiki proper can support.
  • That requires a potentially larger message/language base for the Babel extension than elsewhere in MediaWiki.
