Well....  My thought is that we should ignore @lang always.  The advice 
is that people who are writing content that needs to be portable to 
legacy user agents specify both.  For RDFa that advice could be the same 
were we to update the RDFa spec to include @lang.  However, I do not 
believe that @lang should influence the language associated with an 
XMLLiteral triple.  Mark might have a different opinion, of course.
