Of course, I should have spotted this.

I have two questions:

  * Would it be harmful to mirror HTML and specify a redundant lang parameter
    anyway, even though this can also be functionally acheived using RFC 2231
    syntax. It may be easier for some people to understand this.

  * Is there a default encoding for parameter values, or in fact any other part
    of this header. I could not find anything in the draft which would indicate
    there is a default. Could this cause problems?
