Subject: Re: [security-services] X.500/LDAP attribute profile status

Yes, tags in general are a rather painful part of LDAP.  My impression is 
that language tags do get some use in some communities.  I would be 
prepared to confer with some LDAP experts to try to get a consensus 
opinion on handling this within the next two weeks.
