So far our investigation shows that .ftl files (Fluent) behave differently than .properties and and .dtd files. Specifically, fallback to en-US does not occur on a per-string basis for strings that are missing from a locale's files. Our patch for #27905 introduced a new .ftl file that just contains one string (-brand-short-name). To fix this ticket we may need to include that file in each language pack. Therefore, it may make sense to revisit this in conjunction with the work for #27466 (although I don't know if that ticket will require unzipping of the language packs).
