It's not at all clear to us what the difference is between emma:lang and xml:lang, the relationship between them, or when we should use which. (It might help to create examples that show the use of xml:lang as well as emma:lang.)

[[In order handle inputs involving multiple languages, such as through code switching, the emma:lang tag MAY contain several language identifiers separated by spaces.]]

This is definitely something you cannot do with xml:lang, but we are wondering what is the value of doing it anyway. We are not sure what benefit it would provide.
