Judging from the wiki page, a German/Default resource would not be
considered when looking e.g. for a German/Austria resource. Hence I'd
use German/Neutral for most resources and add a specific resource like
German/Austria or German/Swiss when there would be relevant differences
in spelling or such. (A bit like English/US and English/UK, tho
English/US is nevertheless special since it's a hardcoded fallback.)
