Specifying the language of a catalogue section[edit]

Would you consider Property:P407 or Property:P2439 as more appropriate to specify the language of a catalogue section? I tend pick the latter one as more general (i.e. Q234025), but I've noticed the usage of Property:P407 in Q42. We need a convention here as it's necessary for template builing on all of Wikipedias. --eugrus (talk) 11:59, 4 September 2017 (UTC)
