For the record, the spoken dialect of high German most commonly used in 
Switzerland is now "gsw." de-150 would not include Switzerland's primary 
spoken dialect of German.

I'm having a hard time seeing where the EU distinction would be useful 
where the U.N. code would not unless you're talking about locale codes, 
which are distinct from RFC 3066bis language codes. Currency is not a 
component of language.

Do you have another use case you might want to share? I'm intrigued.
