The problem is of course that lang("en") returns true for elements where
xml:lang="en", false where xml:lang="de", and false where it is unspecified.

I can't think of any way of doing the test other than the unweildy:

<xsl:if test="lang('en') or not(from-ancestor-or-self(*)[@xml-lang])">

In SAXON 4.2 you could write
<xsl:if test="^xml:lang='en' or not(^xml:lang)">
