The following [1] issue was raised in 2000:

"How do string equality and language tag interact. Cross-language comparison
should work at least when the two languages are dialects, e.g. en-us vs

I think the only workable answer is that string equality does NOT depend on
languages, therefore two strings are equal if they are equal

We MAY want to think about saying something about Unicode normalization in
this context (for instance allowing server to treat different Unicode
normalization forms as equal).

Feedback appreciated.
