DFXP supports general use of xml:lang attribute in order to (1) specify
a default language for document instance and (2) to annotation language
of nested content. It is up to the author to decide how to use this
mechanism. For example, an author could potentially specify different
<div/> elements using different languages, or different <p/> elements,
etc. Nonetheless, the intention is not to explicitly support in DFXP
conditional content selection based on preferred language. In contrast,
conditional content selection will be supported in AFXP. The intent with
DFXP is to have already made all conditional selections prior to
transmitting/exchanging in DFXP format. This means that if an AFXP
document supports course granular conditional selection between parallel
language representations, then one may produce multiple DFXP document
instances from a single AFXP document instance, by enumerating over the
condional parameter space (of which each permutation may produce a
distinct DFXP document instance).

3) I don't see a problem with allowing different languages in the same
document but amalgamating different language files at run time is not
difficult.
