Yes, let's avoid 4-letter tags.

Not in a query, such as in the HTTP Accept-Language header.  Putting "en"
(not "eng") there means "I want any kind of English", not "I want standard
English", which many will say does not exist anyway.

This query use of tags is widespread and, IMHO, as important as the
descriptive use where one tags a known text.
