You say:
[[
PS. One case which this might not handle well would be where the one  string
means different things in different languages. Are there any  cases like
that?
]]

If RDF specifies that the xml:lang is to be included in the string, then one
could not have any case where the same string is in more than one language
at all.  See mentograph:
