Comment: 
No mention is made of the concept of a 'language priority list' per RFC 4647. We suspect that this is an oversight, since we expect that a processor needs to choose one item from the list that best fits, and will need some help in making that choice.

 
Furthermore, the text says "A voice satisfies the languages feature if, for each language/accent pair in the list...". We suspect that that should read 'if, for one or more language/accent pairs in the list...' The word 'each' implies that all items in the list must match.

 
If we are mistaken here, please make it clearer in the spec why this approach is used.
