Where did the WMF officially say that multilingualism isn't a priority? A
link would be nice so readers can check that for themselves.

Or do you rather mean that having things exactly the way the subcommittee
wants them to be has no priority? OK, fair enough  - but what would be an
adequate response to that?

Judging by the opinions brought forward in this thread so far, most users
would opt for the most obvious choice and continue to handle the issue the
way it's been handled in the past six years (which has worked well enough to
get us where we are) until more perfect options will be available.

The language subcommittee, however, comes to a far less logical conclusion
and chooses to cut off any progress instead - for reasons you keep repeating
but very few people outside the committee understand.

I wish you guys would end this fundamentalist "all or nothing at all"
approach, for the sake of our fellow Wikipedians from Kabylia, Yakutia and
other places.
