Any which meet the ISO requirements should be registered with ISO.

I am uncomfortable about this. Normally the references we cite are 
specific grammers or dictionaries or other books *about* the languge 

Each language should have its own application and its own reference. 
That's my opinion. I've got all kinds of books which list languages 
by name, but that's not the same as book about or in a language.
