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
en-uk."

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

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.

Julian
