WikidataClient should not *try* to add such a label, but WikidataRepo should reject them anyway (bug 37459); marking as dependent.

A site's real language (eg. simple isn't a language) should be added to the sites table and then be propagated to JS (via PHP). With that information, this bug could be fixed.

What about WikibaseRepo->getSettings()->getSetting( 'canonicalLanguageCodes' )?
