I'd say it's a rather bad idea to make assumptions about my language
skills basing on last stream's xml:lang. What if last time I used a
simple client which does not support xml:lang? Or I used a better
client, but at my friend's place and had no time to set up my language?
Or what if I can speak many languages?

User's preferred languages are not an attribute of their last session,
they don't change so often. So I think this information should rather be
provided in user profile.
