yes that is what i would like and think is correct showing. portuguese
strings should defer to neutral if none is found in the sublang, with a
warning that they may be incorrect.

i would say english is the exception by having all translated in
SUBLANG_DEFAULT and not separating sublangs as is done with portuguese
resources and others.
as i stated in irc one of these days, i think the solution to english is to
have a SUBLANG_BRITISH or whatever and not assume neutral is for british
english, how it is right now contradicts the use of wrc which is sublang ->
neutral -> default (english). i'd say english should have all resources in
neutral and then the different ones in sublang_british or sublang_australian
or other.

at least that is what makes sense to me for the process to be consistent.
