    2.1.3 general observation about language identification

    Tags and annotations generally use natural language tokens (such as words). While Unicode allows text to be stored, passed, and processed without regard for the specific language, it is the case that strings can benefit from language metadata for character shaping, spell-checking, font selection and more. In additional, directionality information is usually desired.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.
