Suggestion: Tag or Sub- tag for Scientific names

The original request, for a tag distinct from "la" to denote scientific
names such as "Linnaea borealis," at least seemed to have underpinnings
of reason behind it.

"Ba humbugi," "Abra cadabra," and "Agra vation" are just word games --
not even very creative ones at that -- and requesting a language tag for
them destroys any credibility the original proposal might have had.
