Good to know.  Somebody argued that if they change "other" to 
"any" for all collections (excl. "mis"), then they might as 
well also change it for "mis" and be done with it, resulting
in "mis" meaning "any language".

If you don't expect this to happen adding John's explanation
what "mis" actually means today as comment to the registry 
will help to avoid further "mis-interpretations" by taggers.
