I was just looking at this, actually. I filed the following bug to track 
it: https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23517

Seems like a reasonable feature to me, FWIW.

See also:

   Notification of change to navigator.language (locale change)

   API to expose locale-specific settings

   API to expose actual language of a node, to aid scripts doing 
   localisation and CJK editors during copy&paste and drag&drop
