Have you taken a look at the GeoLang TC at OASIS? (On the subject of 
published open, formally-defined URIs you may also be interested in the 
Published Subjects TC, also at OASIS.)

http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=geolang

Look in the documents section for language.xtm and country.xtm.

Steve Pepper has written about the use of PSIs and RDF, see:

Hope you are looking forward to a Happy New Year!
