Translations Universal Language Selector/FAQ/53/en; Why not extend to suggest both "Display settings" and "Input settings" are controllable?

On Translations:Universal Language Selector/FAQ/53, we could add that a user can control both language for "Display settings" and "Input settings" on the "Preference" page. Is it intentionally avoided to answer that way to the Question "Can I set all the Language Settings from within my user preference page" ?

These guys at the CDLR don't consider a priority to add Aragonese and Occitan to Spain. I asked them almost a year ago and they left the request on queue. I don't know why they can't process requests efficiently.

Or maybe they did even reject it for lack of priority, I can't remember. Anyways, it sucks.

I came here from Wikidata as it would have been interesting to have Occitan as a default language, considering it is a fallback language for Wikimedia projects in Catalan. But I don't know if this is the place for this comment to be taken into account.

This language selector has replaced the languages I selected for displaying Wikidata labels and descriptions -- and those were the languages I used -- with "English", "British English". "French" and "Latina". Why? English, French and Latin are fine for me, but British English is useless, a total waste of space. There is no British English wiki. Why did someone decide I must have those four? I want to get "German" and "Portuguese" alongside "English" and "Latin" and "French". Why can't I do that? Why didn't this system take note of the choices I had already made or of the way I really work?

On the project page I see the words "you can also do a more detailed work for a single country, see for instance: bug T64346bug T141650bug T142070". Maybe I need to do that, but how? Following those links explains nothing.

I also see the words "ULS queries a service that determines your originating country based on your IP address". That doesn't seem to help me: I live in France. No sensible machine would imagine that two forms of English are among the three most important languages in France.

I also see the words "A small popup (technically called "undo popover" or "tipsy") will also appear when ULS changes the language compared to your previous setting". That would be nice, but it seems to be fantasy.
