Hi guys: Thanks for the well written RFC. The implementation looks
pretty straight forward- a tedious implementation I bet. Tedious
configuration too although I don't have any ideas to shorten
configuration beyond adding service specific blocks to mapfile parsing
to shorten metadata keys.

Anyway, only a couple of basic comments from me:

In section 3 is "wms_inspire_languagesubstitution" really necessary or
could that be inferred by the presence of "wms_inspire_languages". (I
like the approach of language specific extensions.)

In section 3, using run-time subs implies modification of mapfile.c or
would this be done elsewhere? Would wms_inspire_languages serve as a
validation (e.g. supplied value would have to be in that list, no

In section 6, specifically which API functions would take a language parameter?

Testing looks quite extensive... Great! It would be helpful to get
some comment from some of the more OGC competent -devs and/or users
out there. I'd be ok with moving forward on a vote since there's time
to work out kinks before the next release.
