I agree with Addison completely.  Unless Mark or someone else can find 
real-world examples of "mis" being used for a language that has its own ISO 
639 code element and/or language tag -- not hypothetical examples or 
extrapolations or theory -- there is no "narrowing" argument.  We have gone 
to great lengths to assert that "mis" isn't like the other collection codes, 
and now the JAC has made a decision which reflects that assertion.  Let's 
make the appropriate change to the Registry and be done with it.
