Comment: 
"The element langRule is used to express that a given piece of content (selected by the attribute langPointer) is used to express language information as defined by [RFC 3066bis]."


It's surely not the content that expresses the language information, it's the markup that expresses the language of the content. We feel that this paragraph does not explain its intent clearly, and mixes up several ideas.


We suggest:


"The element langRule is used to express the language of a given piece of content (selected by the attribute langPointer).The langPointer attribute indicates the markup which expresses the language of the content pointed to by langRule. This markup must do so usingvalues that conform to BCP 47 or its successor."
