please let us not use "complicated" characters, on some keyboards those
aren't even indicated and you might need multifinger combinations to type
them. If the key says "language format" I believe for the value we only
have to define a separator. The strings between the separator will be
"formats" and we'll not need curly braces to understand it (e.g. "de;fr" or
"de+fr"). If you prefer, we could allow traling and leading spaces ("de +
fr") for improved readability.

Cheers,
Martin
