Cc mediawiki-i18n. As for MediaWiki, this is UniversalLanguageSelector 
domain; outside MediaWiki, do note the project portals 
(<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Project_portals>) sorely need to be 
made language-aware at some point, and probably have several orders of 
magnitudes more visitors than the "mdot webroots".
