--- i would agree, that removing the explicit "language" field from
the straw format is a good idea. Maybe make a note that this IS a
value, but is extracted from the @lang attribute. So it is still
present, but in a different way.

The whole hCite is still in development. So i think it is best to
widdle this down to ONLY the very basic fields needed. Then mark-up
real world examples. Then we can itterate and evolve from there. An
explicite language field (IMHO) doesn't make the first-cut since we
have another (already built in way) to encode this sort of data.

Feel free to ammend the wiki as needed.
