> What about internationalisation/localisation of these error messages ?

What if the spec recommended that the browser display internationalized
error messages based upon the @lang or @xml:lang of the INPUT element's
context? Similarly, what if the default labels for Submit and Reset buttons
were also localized based off of the language context?

For example:

> <div lang="es"><input type="submit"></div>

 Would appear as: [ Proponer ] But...

<div lang="il"><input type="submit"></div>

as: [ Proporre ]

I know this would require browsers to have a large language translation
