Hi all,

Based on the discussion related to issue 26: https://www.w3.org/2011/gld/track/issues/26
The current proposal is to recommend using URIs defined by the Library of Congress in DCAT specification

copied from Richard's email before (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-gld-wg/2012Oct/0151.html )
PROPOSAL: In DCAT-conformant data, values of dcterms:language MUST be members of some subclass, and SHOULD be ISO-639 URIs as defined by the Library of Congress in 
http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/iso639-1.html and http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/iso639-2.html
 . The iso639-1 codes should be preferred, and iso639-2 codes used only when no iso639-1 code is available for a language. This resolves ISSUE-26

please provide any feedback or opinion you might have.
