Two comments:

  1. It's not the highest priority issue for Translatable modules / Message bundles, but it would be nice if it worked correctly.
  2. There is a very similar issue with "wiki-based message groups", such as wiki-betawiki on translatewiki.net, and perhaps the root cause is the same. I don't think it's even reported as a distinct task, because such groups are rare (wiki-betawiki is actually the only one I know). For this group, the workaround to fix it is to make sure that each English message appears both as MediaWiki:message-key and as MediaWiki:message-key/en. It's manual and a bit ugly, but it works.
