IMHO, anything more than 30 testgroups is not usable. It will be hard to
analyze results. It will be hard to create test run for P1 tests...

=> I think that we can't have language name in the 
split test groups by languages. We have 4 languages now. IMHO, it is
realistic to have 20 languages in not that far future.

=> we can have language in the subgroup names only.

I am afraid that it is not the effort. We need a compromise. We need to
estimate what test runs will make sense. I am afraid that priority is
the most important criteria. Anything else would crate too many test
groups and is not worth the effort. Please, see the mail "Test Structure
in Litmus" for more details.
