multilingual documents and language selectors

I have just posted [1] a request for
clarification/modification of HTML 4 that may have a side
effect on CSS selectors: the hreflang attribute is unable
today to reflect the fact that a target URL can have more
than one base language. We need a way to specify that.

On the CSS side, this could trigger the need for a light
adaptation of the [*|=*] attribute selector and of the
:lang*() pseudo-class to match the corresponding HTML4
modification. Such a change would hopefully have no impact
on existing stylesheets, given the nature of the proposed

I'd like to hear back from the HTML WG before elaborating
any scenario about this.
