Apologies for being slow to follow up.

Should we therefore make explicit  in the definition of the its language 
information data category that the xml:lang value takes precedence when 
both match a node?

I see we made a similar statement in relation to xml:id and its:idValue 
in the latter's specification.

Also would this cause issues with ITS1.0 compatability?
