this is already done for variants. beyond that, it might get a bit weird and not quite as feasible in terms of caching.

languages like en-gb are not used as a content language anywhere afaik so wouldn't have the issue in those cases. there are 'languages' like simple english, in which case i think fallback should not apply unless the community explicitly decides they want such thing as some wiki-wide setting.

As far as I can tell, language fallback is now applied by the parser function, see PropertyClaimsRendererFactory
