A minor nit: the document has a dead reference to RFC 4646 which should be removed (the document correctly references BCP 47 instead, which is currently the same thing).

I18N Core WG would like some credit on this document as well :-). Perhaps an acknowledgement?

The two characters are both entities (&lang; and &rang;) which are U+27E8 and U+27E9 respectively. See [1]. These are fairly uncommon characters that look a lot like parentheses.

Length functions have no practical meaning with language tags, whereas they are a useful property of strings.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
