Suppose you have a video or a video stream with just sign language, 
what technique would you use to make the (primary) natural language 
programmatically determinable? (Leaving asside the issue that not all 
sign languages may have language tags.)

I looked at it once more. The sign language video would already be an 
alternative to something else. The solution seems to be to fall back on 
SC 4.2.1 (situation B in 'How to Meet SC 4.2.1' [1]).

Best regards,
