My stars.

He's changed his comment request from "A collection of languages 
which don't belong to any other collection" to "A collection of 
unrelated languages which don't belong to any other ISO 639 

And we have to spend another fortnight arguing about this?

Is "mis" a subtag? Or is it a tag?

Are we going to open up this registry to "comments" about all of the 
639 code elements?
