Have Banda, Zande´, Batak, Ijo, Karen, Kru, and Nuahatl recently been
reclassified as macrolanguages instead of language groups.

Subject: ISO 639 name changes: a general correction

I have circulated a number of announcements with the following
"The implication of this change is that the item is considered a
language group rather than an individual language."
Instead of "language group" I should have used the term "macrolanguage".
