I rather agree. This "mis" discussion makes my eyes glaze over as it 
is not tied to language, but to some categories in the 639 standards. 
But as I have said I would like John Cowan to summarize the state of 
consensus on this one in a fortnight. I'm preparing for the WG2 
meeting in Frankfurt and am content to let you duke this one out on 
your own.
