We've found that it is useful to have a language tag for the whole document
that means, for example,

"This document is meant for French-Canadian users"

The document, however, might not contain a word of French, but it simply
contains information that French-Canadian users need to see. In addition to
that, blocks of text can be tagged separately with the actual language they
are written in.
