Yes exactly, but having this will force each subsites editor to enter all constants. If he doesn't enter a value for constant.label1-nl, it will show the "system-wide" value for constant.label1-nl ("empty") instead of his value for constant.label1-default ("this is englisch text"). 

So the fallback won't be "site-specific" anymore, but just "system-specific". Seems there is really no clean solution for providing such a label-l10n either the main code gets a bit messy, or with every new language every subsite has to enter their specific labels.

Tanks for looking into this!
