On 9 April 2010, Ian Hickson proposed [1] a solution to Issue-88 that said in part:

--
SUMMARY
People are confused by the Content-Language pragma, so it should be made 
non-conforming.
--

The Internationalization Core WG has officially endorsed this proposed solution [2]. Existing, legacy documents (and non-browser processes that use this markup) will not be harmed by this solution while this will eliminate the confusing (and not useful) overlap in language declaration.

(for I18N Core),

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
