Yeah, there is a difficulty, "mul" does not really what
you want.  If you try <html lang="no"> <body lang="nn">
it also won't do what you want.

But it is a new attack vector, maybe you could convince
the HTML5 folks that more than one language can be fine.

They already allow "less than one tag", killing NMTOKEN
for the desired xml:lang="" effect also in (X)HTML.
