I foresee little likelihood of my approving such a tag. It is relevant  
to a process, not to a variety of language. As such it is meaningless.

There is an Esperanto machine translator. It translates into Esperanto  
pretty well. Better than most people. <lang=esperanto>,  
<lang=esperanto-machine>, <lang=esperanto-x-everson>, <lang=esperanto- 

There is no place for a "machine"; this is an authorship tag, not  
relevant to language identification.
