--- Comment #4 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
Overloading "lang" to mean by "language" and "locale" seems dodgy to me. For
example, "en" is a valid language, but "en-GB" and "en-US" have very different
locales. A document might be all in the ISO-8601 locale, while using multiple
different languages (and indeed, ISO-8601 doesn't even have a language, as far
as I can tell, so I'm not sure how one would express that locale as a lang=""
value).
