Hi Peter,

Thanks for the note.

Mark and I have crafted a response on the extensions issue, which awaits final blessing from one of us. You will have that shortly.

I will note that your question here suggests that we envision a new protocol that uses language tags, as opposed to extending language tags as used in their current range of protocols so that they can contain additional language-related information. Neither Mark nor I necessarily envision a new protocol I think.

Internationalization is an architecture. 
It is not a feature.
