Hi.

RFC2518 and ACL define elements that contain a text that "that can be
displayed to the user explaining the nature of the response" ([1]) or "is a
human-readable description of what this privilege controls access to" ([2]).

Both specs avoid speaking of I18N in this context.

I suggest the following:

1) Add wording specifying that these elements MUST be labelled with
xml:lang, and that server SHOULD use the HTTP Accept-Language headers to
determine a suitable language.

2) Update the examples to include xml:lang="en".
