When a controller pushes addon (or really, any) data to the view, it's going through AppController::publish(), which is indiscriminate about what it sanitizes. This means $var['Translation']['field']['locale_html'] is turning into, for example: lang="en-US" We should have it ignore $var['Translation']['field']['locale'] as well, so it doesn't encode dashes.
I think that would be fine. Maybe we should have an array on the model that says which fields should be skipped for sanitization on the output?
r2987 has a quick fix for this so locale_html and locale aren't encoded. I'm leaving this bug open because I think we need a more robust solution for this. We talked on IRC about redoing our sanitization method though, so I'm not sure where we're going yet. Either way, we should look at this again in the near future.
