…WHATWG HTML bug (26942) where someone asked why do these examples of lack the lang attribute? I thought the answer from Hixie was a bit dismissive and not based on any data or real-world benefits of use, particularly in the context of screen readers: Why not? Realistically, few people include it. It just means the language is unknown.
At the time, I could not get the latest archive to download from WebDevData.org (though that has changed, see below), so I fell back to asking for help on why the lang attribute is valuable.

Want to make your site easier for everyone to read? Start with plain language. The plain language I’m talking about isn’t just about paying attention to grammar details or ‘dumbing down’ the information. It’s about communicating clearly.
Plain language makes information usable, so people can find the information they need, understand it when they find it, and use it to meet their own goals. It’s also part of accessibility and writing for a perse audience. People have different levels of literacy, and even good readers do not always read carefully.
