Hi all,

at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-multilingualweb-lt/2013Feb/0318.html
the MLW-LT WG is discussing a use case of expressing that something is 
not in a locale. One way to do this is to add a flag to a BCP 47 value, 
see above cited mail. Another way could be to have in a markup 
environment an additional attribute expressing the "include" vs 
"exclude" options for the BCP 47 value.

Thoughts? This is probably an additional piece of information rather 
than part of a BCP47 value itself. Has such a use case been discussed 
for BCP47 values?

Thanks,

Felix

(this is action-454 for the MLW-LT WG)
