As always others have put it better them me :)

My own 'view' on the translation side is that one should be able to
populate a table with :cy values for everything including the interface,
but defaulting to 'name' is not the optimal, so a :en value cleanly
identified is important. The interface is essentially :en and requires
each word translated to the alternate language, so a clean set of :en
values makes that consistent world wide, while the 'name' element lacks
any identification as to the languages used :(
