Per HTML5, the @lang attribute can be used in both XHTML and HTML:

"The lang attribute in no namespace may be used on any HTML element."

"The term "HTML elements", when used in this specification, refers to any
element in that namespace, and thus refers to both HTML and XHTML elements."

Therefore, Polyglot Markup should specify that xml:lang is optional.
