That markup looks awfully complicated for the simple use case it's  
trying to solve.

Wouldn't this be better:

     <alt on="lang">
       <p lang="en">Hello</p>
       <p lang="fr">Salut</p>


I've included the "on" attribute assuming <alt> would be able to  
define alternatives based on something other than the "lang"  
attribute, although it's not really necessary considering only the  
current use case.
