Please, no. That would require every user agent to support style  
sheets before they could process documents.

html {
   @lang: 'en';
}

Now GoogleBot has to support CSS in order to determine the language  
of the document.

We have markup to define values of attributes of elements, we don't  
need another way to do it.
