With the oa:Body typed as cnt:ContentAsText, is there a way to specify
the language of the cnt:chars?  It doesn't seem that there is a way in
cnt.  I wonder why? One might have to annotate with ContentAsXML to
express the language, which is overkill.

A related use case is the expression of an Annotation in several
different languages. If forced to make them as separate Annotations,
it would be tricky to express that they are meant all to express the
same Textual Note.  Maybe this means that the cnt:ContentAsText should
not be the type of the oa:Body, but rather of something that can hang
on the Body without any cardinality restrictions.
