I would agree with Mark's rather ambitious vision IF that was the kind 
of registry we were maintaining.  But the Language Subtag Registry is a 
registry of codes, not names.  The names are just informative.

If I were looking for the names in Chinese or Russian, I'd probably go 
to CLDR.  (I don't know if they have them yet in N’Ko or Gwich´in.)
