I filed a bug about this (in fact very old) issue [1]. I recommend 
the interested parties to "sit" on that bug. In case no satisfying 
outcome, then it will be handled by the WG according to process.

I also recommend that the issue of what the default language for a 
document without any language tags applied, is filed as a bug. One 
doesn't need to be a member of the WG to file a bug.
