Ah, I see. I think it's a nice idea. I guess a basic babel setup would
be added to preamble. Something like:

#+language: lang

--> \usepackage[lang]{babel}

But I think also users who use custom preamble templates included in
org-latex-classes or those who load the entire preamble via an external
file (a .sty or .tex file) will want to avoid this. Maybe it would be
nice to add a defcustom, with the following values:

- load babel with the value of #+language, when there is no explicit code from 
babel (default?)

- load polyglossia, idem but for polyglossia

- nil

- any other arbitrary string?

If the user loads babel or polyglossia explicitly, with AUTO and all
that, then the current rules in
org-latex-guess-babel/polyglossia-language would be applied.

Juan Manuel
