The issue is that the natural/obvious method of getting information about the
language of a property value is for an application to use the lang DOM property
of the relevant property element. Without a clear indication that doing so is
non-conformant, the assumption will be that the HTML language can be used by
applications that interpret microdata and map to other formats because even
though it's not part of the microdata data model, language is information that
is accessible from the DOM.

It is also not clear to microdata vocabulary creators that they must provide
properties/types to indicate the language of a property's value if they want to
capture that information. Illustrating the use of other languages in one of the
example vocabularies would be one way of making this clearer.
