Hoi, Thank you for your well argued point of view. I followed the statistics as provided by Erik Zachte for a long time and the trend was slowly but surely where based on the statistics of Wikipedia alone English Wikipedia traffic moved slowly but surely from over fifty to under fifty percent. Then there is traffic from everything else..
As to accounting for the spending of the Wikimedia Foundation itself, MediaWiki is developed for Wikipedia. Development of Wikidata is done by the German chapter. So spending of over 50% for English Wikipedia is better than plausible. When new features are introduced, they fit English Wikipedia perfectly. There is no indication whatsoever that features are developed specifically for the small Wikipedias. It is easy enough to argue that many of the "must have" Wikipedia features are an impediment for the development of the small Wikipedias and as Research is focused on English as well, there is not much to say otherwise. Now, please move on and consider the other points I made.
