We would strongly discourage either of those, and ask you to wait
for 4646bis and the tag "css" for Southern Ohlone, of which Mutsun
is a dialect.  (You could, of course, go ahead and use it unofficially;
a standard, like a drink, affects you only if you accept it.)

As for Quiché, which seems to be spelled "K'iche'" these days,
there are six languages containing that term in 639-3.
It's a question which one you have.
