Semi-structured version of the comment:

Submitted by: Jeremy Carroll (jjc@hplb.hpl.hp.com)
Submitted on behalf of (maybe empty): RDF Core WG
Comment type: substantive
Chapter/section the comment applies to: 2 Conformance
The comment will be visible to: public
Comment title: breadth of scope
Comment:
Concerning sections 1 and 2 RDF Core is concerned that the scope of charmod is overly broad.
In particular, there appears to be no acknowledgement that some languages being defined by W3C working groups may not be intended as web languages and hence not have a need to address
internationalization issues. There may be an implicit (and false) assumption that all W3C recommendations specify (only) web languages with processing models.
