Until a better design is decided upon, is it possible to implement something
very simple - to let the user choose in the preferences ONE language that will
show up when a message in his first language is not available?

I am going to work with the Circassian community in Israel to help them develop
the Wikipedia in their language. The fallback language for their language in
MediaWiki is Russian, which is good for the many Circassians that live in
Russia, but for Circassians in Israel the preferred second language is Hebrew
and for Circassians in Turkey and Jordan it's Turkish and Arabic, respectively.

In the current state of affairs they get a mix of Circassian and Russian, which
isn't helpful for them and they are forced to switch the whole interface to
Hebrew, Turkish or Arabic. The problem with this is that it won't be apparent
to them which messages still need translation. Forcing English as a fallback
language for all of them isn't a good solution either.
