RE: [SSML11] i18n comment 1: Language priority list?

My notes from the FTF meeting in Beijing:

It is intentional that all items must match.  Note that xml:lang is not
related to voice.
Failure is handled by voice and inline failure sections.
More text will be added to clarify, an example, and links to other sections.
