I've posted the last update of the "mis" template in
about four weeks ago.  The discussion about it ended,
and the latest 4646bis draft covers "mis" (among other
obscure language tags) in section 4.1 point 4 as #5:

In essence it says "SHOULD NOT be used" and matches
the proposed comment, see below.
