Issue #41 of i18nCore comments:
http://www.w3.org/International/reviews/0606-its/

Sections 5.1, 5.3.2: We feel it is not acceptable that the markup proposed by
ITS makes no mention of ways to define language for the content of ITS
elements. At the very least, a proposed approach should be described in text,
with xml:lang being held up as the most standard way to do things. Such text
could say something like: 

"xml:lang should be available on the span element, unless the format into which
ITS is being integrated has an attribute that fulfills the role of xml:lang, in
which case that attribute should be available on the span element." And similar
for other elements defined for ITS. 

ITS can point out that xml spec does define xml:lang in a global rules kind of
way.
