No, that doesn't sound correct to me. Did you check that this is the way
Windows does it's matching?
As far as I remember, if an exact match does not exist, we should look
for the same language with sublang DEFAULT. IIRC, there is no situation
where defining "SUBLANG_NEUTRAL" is the correct thing to do in resources.
