This JEP does almost the same that you suggest. It was simply replaced
by the IETF draft so I don't think we need another JEP documenting it.
But I don't think we should use xml:lang on individual tags. Only on
the tag with xmlns="...".
<iq><query xmlns="sacre-blue" xml:lang="fr"><foo>bonjour</foo></query></iq>
<iq><query xmlns="sacre-blue"><foo xml:lang="fr">bonjour</foo></query></iq>
Because keeping the xml:lang attribute in a known location would be a
lot easier to parse and construct, I expect. (like xmlns="...")
The specific usage of xml:lang should be documented in each JEP. There
is no way to "add localization" to all existing JEPs with a new JEP.
A lot of work, but maybe new JEPs should be expected to say something
