I am not sure what RDF says about whether a string with a language tag is the
same as the same string with a different language tag. But I am not sure why
you would want to language tag a mailbox anyway.

If you want to know what things are reasonable to send to a mailbox (you can
send me spanish and I will read it, but if you send me korean I am likely to
delete it because I can't read it anyway) you probably want to use the
speaks/reads/writes schema written by Inkel. My FOAF file -
http://www.w3.org/People/Charles/foaf.rdf - contains a bunch of information
about langauges that I or others speak, read, etc.
