I'm not sure it's quite right: We don't use the langRule data cat on xml:lang
because xml:lang is defined in terms of RFC30666. We don't use langRule on
xml:lang because xml:lang is already the standard way to specify languages
(regardless how it expresses that information). So I would add something like:

"The element langRule is used to express that a given piece of content
(selected by the attribute langPointer) is used to express language information
as defined by [RFC 3066bis].
Note: Applying the langRule data category to xml:lang attributes using global
rules is not necessary because xml:lang is the standard way to specify
languages."
