1. Where does the WCAG WG say, that it is only the lang attribute you 
have to test for?

2. I think, whether to include @xml:lang where appropriate into the 
test, would be the responsibility of this joint task force. Do you think 
it's only WCAG Techniques TF responsibility?

3. The HTML Techniques and the HTML test suite cover HTML and XHTML 1.0, 
as mentioned in the Abstract, not e.g. XHTML 1.1, XHTML Basic 1.0 or 
even XHTML 2.0, although, the procedure for test 48 mentions "XHTML 1.1 
or higher". So either the test suite is about HTML, XHTML 1.0 and 
upwards, then the procedure should be rephrased to "4. If the content is 
XHTML based on XHTML modularization ..." (which would include XHTML 
Basic 1.0), or the fourth item should be removed.
