I agree with Martin on the removal of "declaration" and with Richard on 
not including xml:lang.

/If we were to include an example/, I'd say just use "e.g. lang=xx", as 
people who are currently dealing with older HTML should recognise the 
example, while most people who work with XHTML and XML are likely to 
still recognise it from legacy skills. It is also 4 characters shorter.
