Indeed, if I understand correctly, personal names are the number one use 
case for Hanja.

If anything, Randy's off-list research may have shown that pure Hangul 
(ko-Hang) is more common than we thought.  The script subtag is supposed 
to reflect the script, not the choice of vocabulary.

RFC 4646 says we have to run out the full two-week review period, 
without shortcuts.  There is no emergency rush for this (or any other) 
Suppress-Script, and the two weeks do not need to be contentious.
