After discussion with Richard, we agreed to modify the wording under
LINK_CONTENT_FORMAT to mention language as one of things worth
mentioning:
"Links to content that is in a different format or different language to
that of the page the link is on (i.e. content that can only be
interpreted by other applications or downloads) should be human
signposted"
See:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-mobile-bp-20060518/#LINK_CONTENT_FORMAT

Given that this came as a result of discussion with you, we assume
you're satisfied with this resolution.
