Regarding the first three cases, I think the formerly suggested
<term> [1] pretty well covers them all, as these are actually
just three different kinds of terms: taxonomic term, technical term,
and foreign language term:

We belong to the species <term lang="la">Homo sapiens sapiens</term>.
Authors <term>should</term> use semantic markup.
Semantic markup has no <term lang="fr">je ne sais quoi</term>.
