I do, except for the fact that there is no distinction between
e.g. de-1996 and de-DE-1996:

    English name of language   : German, orthography of 1996

    Native name of language (transcribed into ASCII):

The later should be changed to "German, German variant"
and "Deutsch, deutsche Form" in parallel with the -AT and -CH
variants. Same for de-DE-1901.
