Personal comment:

"Applying the language information data category to xml:lang attributes
using global rules is not necessary, since xml:lang is already defined in
terms of [RFC 4646]."

Strictly speaking xml is defined in terms of RFC 3066 or its successor.  It
may be better to say "in terms of [BCP 47]" at this location.  If not, you
should add, or it's successor.  (Bear in mind that RFC 4646bis is just
around the corner, relatively speaking.)
