Why would you want? Nobody has contested it; just pass it on. It would
have been a lot less emails to accept them than all this discussion.

This is a community that registers dialects of languages. There are
far more dialects out there than there are languages to have
suppress-script attached.

Right now the issue is just ISO 639-2. I would be surprised if most of
the languages in ISO 639-3 minus ISO 639-2 have enough text to
meaningfully declare a suppress-script. Or anyone who cares enough to
ask for one.
