Have you tried using

  <parameter name="language" value="{lang}"/>

I'm quite sure the sitemap engine will replaces value attribute of parameters 
with variables. I'm not sure if the syntax you are using (<language 
map:value="{lang}"/> is still valid (it will be parsed but no replacement 
takes place) because it had a FIXME from myself noting that it might be old 

I've committed a patch that fixes that but want to hear if the syntax Tom has 
used is still somthing you all would like to further support.
