Not really. More like what Apple does in this regard: detect the
language of the user agent, and display only the bar when it doesn't match.

Use case #1:

I visit libreoffice.org and I have an user-agent with "fr", the banner
will be displayed and *in French* it will be displayed:

"Your computer is defined in French, would you like to switch to the
French website? [DROP DOWN MENU]   [CONTINUE BUTTON]"

Where [DROP DOWN MENU] is a menu with the languages where French is auto
selected.

Where [CONTINUE BUTTON] redirects to fr.libreoffice.org when clicked.

The footer, still provide the ability to change language and leads to
the NLC page.

Use case #2:

My computer is in English, the banner doesn't show up.

The footer, still provide the ability to change language and leads to
the NLC page


I'm not answering to remaining ideas wrt. order and Wikipedia as it
wasn't what I wanted to express :)

We don't need to reinvent the UX process or do a brand new analysis when
companies have already performed this stage for us :)

I'm available if you need webdevs :)
