the default language (language-id=0) of pages or content is not fixed at
all. For plugins which have to select the correct language (locallang.*)
you can define a value with:
	config.language = en

the other typoscript assignements like 
	config.locale_all = en_EN
	config.htmlTag_langKey = en
are for a correct HTML-header

	config.sys_language_uid = 0
is for selecting any language.

you may ignore the index 0 and prefer any other language as default
	config.sys_language_uid = 4

in this kind you can define another default-value for each page (extension

using only sys_language_uid = 0 will make problems with indexed-search
where you can select one language(ID) for searchings.
which langue is language=0, if the default-language changes for each page?
