doesn't "div" do the trick here:

<rddl:resource
    xlink:role=".../foo"
    xlink:href="../bar"

    <div xml:lang="en">
        <p>This is the english description of the foo link</p>
    </div>
    <div xml:lang="de">....</div>
</rddl:resource>

similarly if you wish to name the description of a resource as opposed to
naming a resource, div also accepts an id attribute.
