For who’s is interested in the topic, I’ve presented my view again in
a different form and in more detail under
http://meiert.com/en/blog/20140825/html-and-language/.

TL;DR: Compared to current practices, it seems Content-Language could
be preferred over @lang to denote document language, and—more
importantly—detecting changes in language should probably be made a
software responsibility.

To avoid parallel list discussions (my bad) it may be more convenient
to collect counter-arguments on the post.
