There is no particular exception to use of @xml:lang on <pron> that I am
aware of. As a global attribute, @xml:lang may be used on any element
but need not be used anywhere.
I am inclined not to bother inserting @xml:lang on these examples. If
you encode a dictionary, every <pron> will likely use the same script as
every other <pron>, and this will be the only part of the dictionary
using this script (whatever it is). I can't imagine a use case for
recording on individual <pron>s.
