You seem to be trying to design an ultimate, ideal current language
facility.  We might want to get there eventually, but I think we
should start with something simple.  After all, most buffers have only
one language in them.  If there are a few words in another language,
the user probably won't find it hard to deal with the fact that Emacs
does not know they are in another language.

Having a selectable language for the whole buffer
is going to be better than the current situation
where you can't select it.

If you have a table in Turkish in the middle of a English document,
and you want to sort the table, you can switch the buffer to Turkish,
sort, and switch back to English.
