It is questionable what the default language for a docBook XNML
document should be. 

E.g. I use "de_DE" as default locale but most of my Docbook documents
are written in english. IMO one cannot deduce from the locale setting
what language a document is written in. 

IMO it is more than good practice to use a "lang" attribute for
DocBook XML documents. Doing this will enbale db2latex to set the
correct "babel" language.
