(too many lists! :))

I'd like to raise a point that Dan Brickley (cced) often champions.  
If it's more appropriate in a narrower scope, please narrow it for me!

In some applications, like FOAF, it's common to compare as equal two  
strings with different language tags (esp. for such purposes as being  
a database key like identifier). I can think of several ways to do  
this (e.g., always comparing the strings and opting in to  
distinguishing the languages), but I thought I'd raise the issue.

Cheers,
Bijan.
