I note that there is a design objective that
4.8 Literal Search

It should be possible for a query to perform substring searches of RDF 
string literals.
and a requirement
3.3 Extensible Value Testing

but no requirement to be able to search on langtag of plain literals, 
nor the datatype of typed literals.

This seems like an omission, since the langtag gives vital information
in multilingual documents. Also it may often be useful to find all
literals with a particular datatype.

Ideally some langtag matching such as language ranges or lang tag 
fallback, as described in RFC 3066 would be best.

It isn't that we believe in God, or don't believe in God, or have
suspended judgment about God, or consider that the God of theism is an
inadequate symbol of our ultimate concern; it is just that we wish we
didn't have to have a view about God. It isn't that we know that "God"
is a cognitively meaningless expression, or that it has its role in a
language-game other than fact-stating, or whatever. We just regret the
fact that the word is used so much.  -- Richard Rorty

Sometimes it's appropriate, even patriotic, to be ashamed
of your country. -- James Howard Kunstler

Habitation creates space; space only exists because we do.

Jazz is only what you are. --Louis Armstrong
