This is exactly the conclusion that I came to when I looked at this stuff
last week.  (Before I gave up again.)  We should also be able to use this
to avoid the other language conditionals in the xsl files, thereby
hopefully removing the complications that are crashing some transformers.
(ie. it should no longer be necessary to have a "language" tag in the xml
file at all.)

+1 on this too.
