Likely I'd care at least for living languages, but in most
cases I couldn't judge it (above checking what TUS 5.0, CLDR,
Haarmann, or encylopedias say about it, if anything). It's
not trivial, e.g. Haarmann claims that ko-KP (among others)
use Hang, not its superset Kore.

If you have fresh ideas how to tackle this issue in a future
4646bis registry please post them on the LTRU list. The last
draft I've read hasn't changed anything about Suppress-Scripts.
IIRC you stated in spring 2006 that _systematic_ efforts would
help for the 4646 registry. "Languages relevant for a given
country" was my best idea for nds, hsb, gsw, dsb, fy, frs, and
frr in the 4646 registry.
Besides I had no copy of TUS 18 months ago, and I didn't look
into Haarmann for more than a decade.
