Tag to be registered       : bs-Cyrl-BA

English name of language   : Bosnian in Cyrillic script, as used in
                             Bosnia and Herzegovina
Native name of language (transcribed into ASCII): bosanski

Reference to published description of the language (book or article):

RFC 3066 currently provides for the tags bs for Bosnian, and bs-BA 
for Bosnian as spoken in Bosnia and Hezegovina. Bosnian is customarily 
written both in Cyrillic script and also in Latin script, however.

It is often required, when matching languages, to select a subset of 
documents written in a particular script. When looking up language 
resources, this is even more important, so that text in different 
scripts is not mixed.

Thus, it is important to be able to distinguish between scripts 
used in writing bs-BA: bs-Cyrl-BA vs. bs-Latn-BA.
