Dear Christian and all,

FYI and in case you have further comments, I brought this thread to the
attention of the W3C i18n working group, see this issue
also, W3C has started work again on a draft about "language tags and locale
identifiers", see the editors copy here
that version contains also some guidance about working with language tags
in the context of RDF, see

Feel free to provide feedback here or within the W3C GitHub, we'd be more
than happy to take this into account.
