3.1.1 Example 1

"A Web unit produced in Germany includes content in both German and English, but most of the content is in German. The primary natural language is identified as German (de)."

If the primary language is expressed using HTTP or meta tags, it is possible that both languages should be identified if this is a document aimed at a bilingual audience. If the primary language is to be expressed in the html element tag, only one language can be chosen. This example is too vague. This goes back to the question of what WCAG means by 'primary language'.
