Yes, this is an odd curiosity. It would be much more logical if the function
took a node as an argument and defaulted to the context node. The only
reason we haven't done this, I suspect, is that of all the 27 functions in
XPath 1.0 this one is probably by far the least often used.

Functions and Operators, Section 14.1.5 fn:lang <fn:lang>  

Why is this function only defined on the context node ? 
It may be useful to pass in any node.
