Hi Felix,
Thank's for this, I'll include it in the agenda for today.

One point:

http://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-dcat/#Property:catalog_language

defines the language used in the meta-data, and for that purpose is 
probably sufficient.

However, the others seem more relevant to specifying the language of the 
LanguageResource that is the subject of the meta-data.

For this i'd tend to agree that some way of allowing different schemes 
to be used for applications that need them, e.g. lexical resources or 
resource focussed for language preservation.

But where more specialised language code requirements are not in place, 
then we still should specify the best practice, e.g. 
dct:LinguisticSystem as specified in dcat for catalogue_language, in 
order to promote interoperability in codes as far as possible.

The current ms vocab already supports this specialisation, for example 
having ms:linguisticInformation information for the 
ms:LexicalConceptualResource subclass, which seems reasonable.

cheers,
Dave
