This subject seems to be like the flu: it comes back periodically.

Briefly again:

1) The URI scheme should be considered at the top ("http" but also "file"); i.e., the HTML attribute modifies the scheme language labeling.

2) The "file" scheme should be addressed; in practice as important as the "http" scheme.

3) The HTML attribute can contain only one language, hence one cannot label multilingual files.

4) The language should be indicated in only once; e.g., this is really bad:

 <html lang="en" xml:lang="en">

5) From the pass:

There are probably more: these are the one where I commented.
