GEO WG regularly has to clarify for people that language declarations and directionality markup are very different things - including a long and draw out discussion with DITA folks. It seems dangerous to introduce an example here that seems to the uninitiated to say that the language markup is defining the application of the directionality markup.

In particular since the xpath expression probably doesn't need to go that far anyway for a reasonable example. It could just say /body/p[1]/quote or //quote[23] or some such.
