A full page (in hardcopy) has been spent on language
identification, but it appears to be for naught since
there is no requirement that any kind of error be reported
if productions [33]-[38] are violated in an "xml:lang"
attribute on an element.

PROPOSED FIX:  Define a new validity constraint, that
any "xml:lang" attributes must (after normalization as
an NMTOKEN) conform to [33].

ALTERNATIVELY:  Just define it to be an error, which
(like all errors except constraint violations) isn't
required to be reported.
