Hi, allI think listing 50 items is a  wee bit excessive in terms of requirements for getting a subtag; the orthography does look strange at times, yes, but I still say if it's out there . . . . Best, C. E. Whiteheadcewcathar at> 
(But I do think scholarly languages, which will appear on the web, deserve subtags too--after all, it's nice to be able to search for a text in 17th century French or for a modern translation of it, etc. )
