I think $lang would have to be more than just the two-letter language
code. It should be fully descriptive of the language, locale, and
encoding, for example, vi_VN.viscii is different than vi_VN.tcvn, just
as ja_JP.sjis != ja_JP.eucJP != ja_JP.ujis, there are many others,
especially among the Asian languages where the encoding formats have
either not been standardized or there is no widely accepted encoding.
