Thanks Addison and Doug.

I thought there was considerable support for Reshat's subtags,
and the only problem was we wanted him to decide between

and I think baku1926

as Reshat had rejected uniturk
and maybe had rejected uta1926 too.

As for mine, the support for the request was a bit mixed, though I had some 
support for sure, but I could see no reason to reject the subtags, technical 
or otherwise.

Both sets of subtags will help to improve the encoding of the language and 
on the web.

That is what we are supposed to be doing.

So I hope we can expedite both requests.
