Would there be some means of referencing the "root" locale other than using the empty string?

Also, one means of assigning a locale would be to scrape one or another @lang attribute in some HTML or XML content. If that attribute were empty, would RangeError be an expected outcome? Wouldn't it be better to handle the empty string gracefully, since it isn't necessarily an error condition?
