Accept. I also assume this applies to "recommended when applicable", and 
that all instances of either should be modified to "opt".

Reject (see my comments on the ticket).

Accept, with Lou's suggested wording.

I'm not sure exactly what's being proposed; I've posted two comments 
trying to help myself understand the issue properly, so if someone could 
read those and see if I make sense, that would help. But there is a 
problem that needs fixing.

Agree to fixing the obviously bad values; reading the ticket suggests 
that once that's done, there needs to be a spin-off ticket to decide 
whether Syd's rigorous reading of the situation re @xml:lang is right 
and should be the TEI's position, or whether a more relaxed reading is 
possible, allowing for more options when choosing language codes.

> 3289073	many missing references in guidelines

Agree. The bug is already assigned to Stuart, so he'll presumably do 
these once he has the OK.

Not sure. Appears that Laurent has spun off another ticket for this. See 
my comment on Lou's question.
> 3223544	use of head and p within figure

Agree that the specific example in question needs to be supplemented 
with an explanation of why/when it's appropriate to use <p>.

FRs coming soon.
