User statistics are one thing. But it is not a net-win to future 
end-users/visitors if web-authors are encouraged to be lazy about 
specifying language.

If a text node has multiple languages there could be lang="auto" to 
let authors explicitly tell the user agent to try and do its best to 
detect languages and thus correct hyphenation.

I really don't want to see legal, medical or scientific texts 
auto-hyphened incorrectly in future just because there are existing 
documents created by lazy authors.
