Harald, I believe it would have better if you had phrased it as
"by analogy with RFC 3934" rather than "according to RFC 3934"
which is specific to WG lists. But indeed people should note that
the languages list is an official IETF non-WG list (shown at
https://datatracker.ietf.org/public/nwg_list.cgi). The IESG has
considered in the past that applying RFC 3934 by analogy is
reasonable for such lists (including the appeal process, which
JFC is currently using for his previous ban).
