Are you interested in using the dual-language version as an aid
in translation, or just to hold both versions?

You can easily mix the two versions, at the element level:

<para lang="ru">This would be in Russian, if I knew any.</para>
<para lang="usen">This is in English.</para>

If you only want one of them to appear in the output, that would
require a little (er, maybe a lot) of customization.
