I was referring to this specifically

        On Tue, 10 Apr 2007 18:39:23 GMT
        In Internationalization Best Practices: Specifying Language in XHTML & HTML Content
        At http://www.w3.org/TR/i18n-html-tech-lang/#ri20040808.102523274

        3.2 The text-processing language

        When specifying the text-processing language you 
        are declaring the language in which a specific 
        range of text is actually written, so that user 
        agents or applications that manipulate the text, 
        such as voice browsers, spell checkers, or style 
        processors can effectively handle the text in 
        question. So we are, by necessity, talking about 
        associating a single language with a specific 
        range of text.

I see in this text, the following list 

* voice browsers
* spell checkers
* style processors (what is it?)

So for those plus others such as I guess automatic translators, etc. is there

* implementation guide 
  (best practices on how to correctly use it)
* implementation report
  (products that would have already implemented the processing of lang attributes)

I guess that would help for promoting it.
