Sure. There's been some discussion about the WMF highlights, because 
it's not clear how the languages for which to solicit translations were 
chosen. Similarly, this survey allows translation only in some 
languages, and it's not clear how they were chosen.
This is a perennial problem, as shown by the number of old drafts and 
discussions about it 
(https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Transcom#Core_set_of_languages ), and 
looks like we need to provide a solution as soon as possible. It's not 
possible to define a single list of "core languages", but we could 
provide translation requesters with some guidelines so that they don't 
have to reinvent the wheel every time.
