I think that this document is especially important when Publishing@W3C
uses JSON.

A First Public Working Draft of Strings on the Web: Language and
Direction Metadata was published.
https://www.w3.org/TR/string-meta/

This document describes practices for identifying language and base
direction for strings used on the Web. It was developed as a result of
observations by the Internationalization Working Group over a series of
specification reviews related to formats based on JSON, WebIDL, and
other non-markup data languages. Unlike markup formats, such as XML,
these data languages generally do not provide extensible attributes and
were not conceived with built-in language or direction metadata.

The concepts in this document are applicable any time strings are used
on the Web, either as part of a formalised data structure, but also
where they simply originate from JavaScript scripting or any stored list
of strings.

Public comments are welcome, please raise them as github issues.
