Adding variant subtags 'aluku' and 'nduyka' and 'pamaka' for dialects

I have a small concern with Doug's revision: when people see
Description: Aluku dialect
Description: Boni dialect
will they understand that these are alternate names for the same dialect, or perceive these to be two different dialects? It might be helpful to keep something to the effect of "Aluku and Boni are alternate names" in the comment field. (Likewise for the other registrations.)

I also agree with Doug.
