as far as you translate every page you will have no problems.
the default-language (pages and content in default-language) normaly is a
fall-back if a page does not exist in the actual language.

If yopu don't need this fall-back you may deselect this functionality and
have a different menu/ sitemap/ page tree in each language.
and so there are language-selectors which can decide whether there is a
translation of the actual page to a language, you will get no broken links.

just find a solution what will happen if your site is called without
L-Paramter. ;-)

Don't ask what the TYPO3-community can do for you.
Ask what you can do for the TYPO3-community.
