I made this <http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/264>:

Proposal:

1) At the end of 3.1, add:

"Note: the format used for ext-value allows specifying a natural 
language; this is of limited use for filenames and is likely to be 
ignored by recipients."

2) In Section 4, language tagging is used in one example; modify the 
example not to use it.

Best regards, Julian
