encoding and languages are not the same beast.
I do not know any agents which does what you suggest. Do you know one?

lang /can/ be used, for example, in the following cases:
   - automatic translation with mixing of languages.
   - User agent (speech) for pronouncing with the right accent.

Some titles stays in their original languages, some titles are  
changed and there's nothing in XHTML which addresses these cases as  
should it be kept in the original language or not when translating.  
Example Japanese names of authors. ITS is an XML effort for doing this

See "How I explained ITS to my child"
