After talking with Felix today I realized that for language identification, we can have a 'normal' rule. Actually the proposed

<its:langRule its:selector="//*" its:langMap="@myLangAttribute"/>

Is fine (except for the langMap name). But I see it as a normal slection+information rule, not a mapping.

It simply says: For any node of "//*" go fetch the language identifier information in @myLangAttribute and apply it to the node.

Just like <its:locInfoRule its:selector="//p" its:locInfoMap="@myNode"/> says: for any node of "//p" go fetch the note in @myNote
and apply it to the node.

So, we certainly can have a langRule without involving 'mapping'.

As for mapping, I'm not sure at all how to express it. I think we would first need to know how it would be utilized besides using it
for what the <zzzRule> elements already provide.
