Comment: 
In addition to the comments below, we note that there is barely mention of language or locale negotiation or locale considerations in this document. This is probably appropriate given the scope of this document, focused strictly on the XmlHttpRequest object.However, it should be noted that lack of these capabilities will require non-interoperable custom implementations. Standardization of language/locale negotiation for AJAX and REST type interactions (that rely on XHR) should be described somewhere. This may represent a work item for the Internationalization Core WG. In particular, we note these documents:


Web Services Internationalization Usage Scenarios [http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/NOTE-ws-i18n-scenarios-20040730/]
Requirements for the Internationalization of Web Services [http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/NOTE-ws-i18n-req-20041116/]
