This overstates the rationale somewhat: there are many languages for which a
simple whitespace/punctuation-delimited tokenization does the job.  However,
there are also languages where tokenization is entirely language-dependent. 
Further, stemming is certainly entirely language dependent, so at the very
least the spec needs to say what a stemmed query with language=none means.
In general, we still prefer that language=none be dropped, so that those kinds
of messy questions can be avoided entirely.
