I am aware of that. It would make sense for lang to be a tag. (In fact, it
used to be a tag, at least in the never-official HTML3.) Class can also be
applied to most elements, and can be used to indicate that something is a
heading, but we nonetheless have hn. (Not prfectly analogous, but good
enough, I guess.)
