I agree. Using an optional title on the following would be a much  
better solution for rel-tag than the current implementation. Though,  
as indicated, the french tag should probably still remain in French.

<a rel="tag" href="/username/tags/cheese" title="Cheese">Your Cheese<a>
<a rel="tag" href="/tags/cheese" title="Cheese">Everyone's Cheese<a>
<a rel="tag" href="/tags/fromage" title="Fromage" lang="fr">Fromage<a>

Using title would also allow proper internationalization of rel-tag.  
For example, the restful katakana tag space is readable only to  

<a rel="tag" href="/tags/%u30D4%u30D5/" title="ピフ">ピフ</a>
