One could *imagine* so, yes :) I suppose I was fishing a bit because of course if a search engine *was* doing that then it would picking up information in different languages about those things, and it would want to preserve the language of the information so that they could present something useful back to the users. And that would be a good example for Hixie on the bug on microdata language handling [1]...

Any concrete examples of this, or even statements of intent, would be useful.
