I make no claim that there are 50 example documents in Unilingua.  There
might not be five.  I regarded the 50-document requirement as a
criterion for registration under ISO 639-2, not necessarily for
registration under RFC 3066.

Perhaps the sole benefit of this whole Unilingua thread has been to
cause us to examine what we think "unnecessarily" or "worth the trouble"
means.  It is clear we have differing views on that.
