Comment: 
The explanation of the language information data category should clarify that this only provides for rules to be expressed at a global level because it is assumed that it would be unnecessary locally. Locally users would be able to use xml:lang (which is defined by XML) or an attribute specific to the format in question (as in Example 33).


The XML spec acts in a way like an ever present provider of certain global rules defining such things as xml:lang.
