In a nutshell: if a language is written predominantly in one script, but
also in others, should there be a lang-script registration for the dominant
as well as the occasional scripts?  

(There is also a question whether Cyrillic is dominant in this sense for
Serbian, or whether Latin and Cyrillic are equally significant scripts.)
