Modification in description of langMatches operator

Comment:
 
We propose to replace the second sentence in the first paragraph: 
\"RFC4647 defines a case-insensitive, hierarchical matchingalgorithm which operates on ISO-defined subtags for language and country codes, and user defined subtags.\". 
 
It would be better to use the terminology \"basic language range\" instead of \"hierarchical matching algorithm\". Also, note that matching defined in RFC4647 does not use sub tag information from e.g. the underlying ISO standards. Such information is described in RFC 4646for the purpose of language tag validation, a process independent of language tag matching. The validation process uses the IANAlanguage sub tag registry [http://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry].

 
Proposal for replacement of the second sentence: 
\"RFC 4647 defines matching of language tags against basic and extended languageranges. This specification implements matching against basic language ranges.\"
