This situation should have improved with the current svn version. Either 
fetch polyglossia.sty from the repo or add this in the preamble:

%% This is for compatibility with Babel-aware package:
\cslet{ver at babel.sty}{\@empty} % this "fakes" babel
\def\languageshorthands#1{\relax} %this is for scrlttr2 class
\AtEndPreamble{\let\bbl at set@language\xpg at set@language} %for biblatex
\AtEndPreamble{\let\bbl at main@language\xpg at main@language} %for biblatex

I hope to release a new version on CTAN in the next few weeks.
