That's a strong argument for 639-3/RA to do what they've been urged to
do: change "lav" to a macrolanguage and introduce "lvs" for Standard
Latvian and "ltg" for Latgalian. But it doesn't address my question.
What I'm asking is: if proposal 2009-048 passes the RA, is it better
for interoperability if people who tag new data that they know to be in
standard Latvian use the "lav" tag or the new "lvs" tag?
