No it's not but of course I hope we insist that the comments be as clear as 
possible whenever there is any chance of confusion; this goes for tags like 
br (Breton), uk if it is misused (that shocks me that uk is misused?  how? 
it's clearly not a language with Ireland and Irish, and Wales and Welsh a 
part of it???), etc.

Not that we should revise all the tags of course now but whenever we are 
registering them.  And of course people can submit requests to update a 
comment perhaps.
