I misspoke:  I should have said "We are not yet in an 639-3 world."
If "gsw" and "wae" don't meet the ISO 639-2 criterion of at least
50 documents in at most five institutions, we can't use those codes
from them until 639-3 becomes a reality and 3066ter can be written to
recognize them, once we have decided what the rules on using "gem-gsw"
vs. plain "gsw" will be.

"But I am the real Strider, fortunately,"       John Cowan
he said, looking down at them with his face     jcowan at
softened by a sudden smile.  "I am Aragorn son
of Arathorn, and if by life or death I can
save you, I will."  --LotR Book I Chapter 10
