Thank you for creating this ticket for me.

I don't know the size and impact of this yet, I am also just loosely affiliated with the wiki in the example.

This issue might have a cascading effect on other tools that are available on Wikibase.cloud, like Cradle. E,g. https://beyond-notability.wikibase.cloud/tools/cradle/?#/shex/E1 (work in progress) only shows the property numbers, because there is no setting for British English.

As far as I can tell and remember this is desired behaviour of wikibase.
En is the top of the fallback tree.
En-gb will fallback to en.
En doesn't fallback to anything.

You can find the fallback chains in this diagram

Ah we see, so than this issue can be closed.
