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.
