Hi,

I support Jirka and Richard on this.


> Using class="notranslate" isn't an abuse as far as I can tell.

The class attribute is used for other things. Overloading it with "notranslate"
is not a viable solution.


> This seems like a feature that would get only narrow use.
> Is it really worth adding to the language?

I disagree. Several content providers are using workaround because a standard
solution does not exist.

Using a subtag is not the solution either. It overloads the value with
information that has nothing to do with the language.
