Hi Richard (and I18N WG)

#1 you usually add a reference when the document is referenced somewhere
    in the prose, right ? That's not the case...

#3 the title is "Selectors". What is CSS specific in it exactly ?

#4 I tend to disagree with changing 'hreflang' to 'foo'. We are not
    only giving here a meaningful example. Nothing in the prose says
    the selector is restricted to lang or hreflang

#5 the spec does not rely on a given version of XML. It can select
    in any kind of markup tgree-based language.

#6 "A type selector containing a namespace prefix that has not been previously
     declared is an invalid selector. The mechanism for declaring a namespace
     prefix is left up to the language implementing Selectors. In CSS, such a
     mechanism is defined in the General Syntax module."

#7 we only use hreflang because it's a commonly used and well known HTML4
    attribute. That way, the readers of the spec understand easily what it is

#8 ok

#11 highly desireable is not always in line with browser performance...

#13 ok

#14 "For example, in HTML [HTML4], the language is determined by a combination
     of the lang attribute, the meta element, and possibly by information from
     the protocol (such as HTTP headers). XML uses an attribute called xml:lang,
     and there may be other document language-specific methods for determining
     the language."

#15 yep, and I wonder how we missed that one !

#18 absolutely

#19 a pause ?-)

#20 oh, no please... That's certainly something I don't want us to dive into.
     We could link to a definition, but adding one ourselves is too dangerous.

#21 no, Selectors don't need Syntax to be implemented.
