Excellent to get this sorted.

I am ambivalent about this. But on the whole I think your suggestion
is the only practical one. We can change the schema for the Guidelines
to make xml:lang compulsory on <exemplum>, by the way.
the processing _will_ have to change. Can we get this done
in the next month? how close are you to a listing all the
exempla which need an xml:lang=""? I assume we just assign "en" to
all the others which have no xml:lang at present.
