 > Just so I understand thid correctly, somewhere in your application you
 are setting the language property, _before WP loads the translations.

 locale data with an empty object, causing your language property to be

 No, the language property comes from translations. Here is the example of
 our translation file:

 * {"":{"plural_forms":"nplurals=2; plural=n !=
 1;","language":"ta_IN","localeSlug":"ta"}, ... }

 So, I think we cannot set the language property later. But I can ask
 whether our application is able to generate translation files all the time
 to avoid falling back to an empty locale data.

 > Alternatively, what if core would always set some properties like
 language instead of using an empty object?

 This sounds good! But I'm not sure what property can be used as the
 developers like us have already set some kind of property.
