A solution does seem desirable.  Though I suspect that many alerting systems will be deployed with one language or with all of the small number of "official" or "supported" languages present in the message.  This is probably going to be necessary for all "implicit" subscriptions anyhow.

In HTTP-land, the Accept-Language header is used for that sort of thing.  The header is present in SIP, but it's use seems limited - and what evidence I have supports the notion that most servers ignore it.

We could define a use for Accept-Language and see how that flies.
