Hard questions, but let me remind that CLDR has data on the script and 
usage level of languages: 
(used by us mostly for 
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/ULS/FAQ#language-territory> ).

So in your example, if I were visiting the French article from RĂ©union, 
and CLDR said that Chinese is spoken there ten times as much as Russian 
(I'm inventing), this would be a factor to consider.
