I can think of a bunch of other bibliographic contexts where it makes sense.
Electronic text, some of which is program code; records, some of which are
instrumental.  (The text on the record label is another matter.)

The other core standards already have such things, like the script code for
"unwritten" and the UN macro-geographic code for "the world".
