How about if I don't want such fallback to work

like to see what is labeled and what is not? Have you considered this
a user option with a flexible fallback schema or a site-wide
preference with a fixed one?
In general, this is a very good Wikidata feature yet not implemented.
And thanks for raising the category redirects once again! :)
I guess being able to see what's translated and what's not can be
resolved by appending language names to labels when it's falling back
to another language.

If I understand your proposal on User:Liangent/wb-lang right you want to
write an extension or implement the language-fallback in directly wikibase.
I thougt about doing something about the missing-lang-issue by myself and
think writing a gadget would have a higher possibility to get it deployed on
. And users who don't like it could easily disable the gadget in
I guess I prefer to patch Wikibase directly.
You should keep in mind that the userinterface of such a feature is not easy
So there're two weeks used for collecting feedback about designs in my proposal.

We already have a way to handle that kind of thing
with normal language
Wikidata should be able to do something similar trivially.
I don't understand how &uselang=qqx would work for this. Any explanation?
