[TYPO3-core] Translation 'en' missing

first of all, I'd like to point out, that when working with complex[1] 
multi language sites, the concept of having a "default" language is very 
limiting, if not to say: a real pain.

This especially applies for translation of records, but it also applies 
to translating labels.

I do not see how doing so would have a negative impact. What could 
possibly break if we just remove this line? Why was it added in the 
first place?

The whole language and translation stuff would be far more consistent 
with using proper locales all over the place (instead of e.g. language 
uids). Would be great if you could work on that and make suggestions 
(this is a totally other topic though).

It would also be good to have a streamlined, easy to use API for label 
translations. Currently it's just a mess...

Kind regards,

[1] With complex I mean e.g. a TYPO3 instance with two domains but 
require a different default language for each domain.
