Your (now dropped) mapping of microdata to RDF [1] did take into account
language from the element when generating RDF (step 6.1.4.). Does that mean
that it is OK for a consumer to take language into account when processing
microdata, despite it not being part of the microdata data model, or was that
an error in that mapping?

Having some text in the spec that clarifies the interaction of microdata and
HTML language would be really useful to avoid publisher and consumer confusion.
