The only benefit that this syntax would have is that the PATTERN could be
derived from the DEFAULT-URL.

It would still be required to look up which translations of the web page
exist and which don't. Why? Assume the Spanish translation exists and the
Portuguese translation doesn't exist, and the user has set LANGUAGE=pt:es.
Then it would be wrong to present DEFAULT-URL?lang=pt to the user, because
it would show a 404 page or fall back to English. The user wants to see
DEFAULT-URL?lang=es in this case, though.
