OPF: meta and xml:lang?

EPUB Publications 3.0 explicitly notes for the OPF:package element and for some Dublin-Core elements as well, that xml:lang is applicable, but not for OPF: meta.
Is this intended or a bug?
The language used in the content of the element can depend on the values of the elements
property and scheme, therefore the content of each OPF: meta can be in a different language.
How to specify this?

The xml:lang attribute and dir attributes are both allowed by the schema, for the reason you note, so epubcheck won't generate an error if you use them. No doubt a bug with the spec/build process, as the xml:lang/dir definitions are shared.
