response from a LOC staff then was that too many of the references were on
the subject of Blin but not in the Blin language.  So until more in-Blin
materials can be collected (some were 2002 but are not in the list), 
"cus-byn" would be the next best thing.

If you think the ISO 639-2 rules are less rigid now, then I suppose its
worth another try.
