I am not sure I understand the question and the vote.

- RDF plain literals, and _only those_ can have language tag
- The decision Manu was referring to explicitly refers to non-language-tagged literals only (those language tags create a whole range of issues, primarily because the XSD datatype xsd:string does not have anything prepared for language tags...)

I am not sure what your vote is based on these two statements...

Mine is +1, b.t.w.
