Hello i18n core,

This is a reply on behalf of the i18n ITS working group. See also
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3500 for our discussion.

Thank you very much for your comment. We agreed to implement it. Please
have a look at
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#selection-local
 , especially example 15: "Note that xml:lang indicates only the
language, not the directionality."

Please let us know within 2 weeks if you are satisfied. If we don't hear
 from you , we will assume this issue as closed.

Regards,

Felix

It seems dangerous to introduce an example here that seems to the uninitiated to say that the language markup is defining the application of the directionality markup.
