That was a very different idea to what Frederik mentioned - this was
meant to specify the language of the name=* tag. This was intended to
solve a very specific problem but was mostly rejected because it would
add a lot of complexity to only solve that problem but not affect most
of the other language related issues in mapping.
Lukas had made another proposal ultimately rejected that is somewhat
more generic but is still doing things 'the other way round', i.e. by
providing language information for the name tag:
I don't think the idea of specifying the local name by reference to the
local language has so far been elaborated on in the OSM wiki.
