This is a good point.  If, as Gabriel said earlier, "valenciano can be 
considered a dialect of catalan," there should probably be a reference 
somewhere that identifies the differences.  Wikipedia has quite a bit of 
material which I don't have time to check right now.  The difference in 
name is not enough; "Valencian" is already listed in the Registry as a 
Description for "ca".
