We've always talked about the vorbis comment headers being informal and
oriented for human readability. In that vein I'd been thinking 'English'
or 'Español' for the language tag. Perhaps the guideline would be that
it should be recognizable as a label for those who speak the language.
This provides plenty of flexibility for 'unknown' languages.
The reasons to use a language code are (a) for machine comparability to
e.g. choose among alternate language tracks automatically based on a set
of user priorities, and (b) that it might be easier to look up
unfamiliar language names by code. I'd been thinking about an additional
tag, maybe 'LC_LANG' for this. OTOH, you could argue this is an abuse of
the comment header and that machinable language codes go in our mythical
stream-description metadata format. Guess we won't know until we work
