\"Specification of the natural language in use assists with predictive text input.\"

 
It is unclear to us whether this refers to standard mechanisms in X/HTML to declare language, or to a declaration specific to input modes. That should be made clearer. (If you were referring to input mode settings, we feel it would also be useful to encourage declaration of the language used in content using standard mechanisms, since that assists with not only predictive text input, but also styling, font selection, etc.)

 
Whatever the above refers to, this section contains no other information about how to do it, and how to test for it. This should be added.

 
(The i18n tutorial 
Declaring Language in XHTML and HTML [http://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/language-decl/]
 may be helpful here for you to understand what i mean by \'standard mechanisms...\'.)
