I'm thinking something a bit more like:

<iq type='get' to='some.transport.server.com'><query
xmlns='jabber:iq:register' xml:lang="it"/></iq>

Transports which do not support the xml:lang attribute or which just
don't have an italian translation for the instructions would return

A non-english client would need to also take the registration field names
(the tag names) which are predefined and represent them correctly in
whatever language within the client.
