The newsletter is the only place where the name for MF is listed as 
"Saint Martin (French part)", and not consistently there.  Everywhere 
else it is simply "Saint Martin".  It shouldn't be hard to tell that 
this entity represents only the French part of the island, since the 
Dutch part is known as Sint Maarten.

The English name for BL is consistently spelled "Saint Barthélemy" with 
an acute accent in the updates.

Accordingly, here are the two new proposed region tags, up for a week's 
review before being sent to IANA:

Type: region
Subtag: BL
Description: Saint Barth&#xE9;lemy
Added: 2007-xx-xx
Type: region
Subtag: MF
Description: Saint Martin
Added: 2007-xx-xx
