Hi Peter,

Would this still be up for comments? If so, there is a correction. The 
national language of the Philippines is Filipino (fil) and not Tagalog 
(tl; tgl). Filipino has just been added to ISO 639-2 last 2004-9-20 
that's why it didn't make the 2004-9-17 deadline. Together with English 
(until otherwise provided by law), they comprise the official languages 
of the Philippines. These are stated in the Philippine Constitution, 
Article 14, Sections 6 and 7.
