I'm on the fence whether this should be MUST or SHOULD. 

Pros for MUST:  it's what we mean, having two with the same lang is 
incoherent, it's consistent with enforcing in the schema via Unique, I 

Cons for MUST:  turns it into a conformance requirement to check.   If I 
find an English reason, must I really check that there weren't also two 
strings in Russian?  That's a lot of implementation effort for a 
non-validating implementation.

As I say, I'm unsure what's best.

Certainly the intent was that all the xml:lang values would be
different. I can amend the schema and the spec tomorrow
