(Unless ICANN at some point down the road decides to publish documents used in or interpretations from meetings in the language of the host country--then, in some host countries. there might be a need to identify a script. However even choosing to tag a document as simply as possible is part of BCP 47.) --C. E. Whiteheadcewcathar at hotmail.com
