--- Comment #7 from Eliot Graff <eliotgra@microsoft.com> 2011-03-02 23:37:57 UTC ---
The 2 March Editor's Draft has the following for Section 7.2, Language
Attributes:

]]
7.2 Language Attributes

When specifying the language mapping of an element, polyglot markup uses both
the lang and xml:lang attributes. Neither attribute is to be used without the
other, and polyglot markup maintains identical values for both lang and
xml:lang.

Polyglot markup uses the language attributes in the html element to set the
default language for the document. 

Note
 Whenever the http-equiv="content-language" attribute on the <meta> element
specifies the language of the root element, then it is required to specify the
language mapping of the root element. According to Content language state in
[HTML5], the http-equiv="content-language" attribute on the <meta> element
specifices the language of the root element whenever its content attribute
contains no more and no less than exactly one language tag.

I believe this covers all of your points in comment #6. Thanks so much for
keeping at this and following this through to the end. I appreciate the help.

Eliot
