1.  Introduction

   vCard [RFC6350] and iCalendar [RFC5545] are standards compliant to
   the vObject data model [I-D.calconnect-vobject-vformat-03].

   These standards are used worldwide and require proper certain
   localization elements suitable for multi-cultural use.

   Previously, the only internationalization method for vCard [RFC6350]
   and iCalendar [RFC5545] standards was the "language" property
   parameter (3.2.10 [RFC5545]).
