Lower Saxon as a group

In Ethnologue the Dutch variations of "Low Saxon" have been split into
separate languages while the German entities are left as dialects. The WMF
Low Saxon community wants to start a Wikisource that will be inclusive of
both German and Dutch Low Saxon texts. In my appreciation, we need an
overarching group for the whole of Low Saxon. Now as we are supporting
groups in ISO-639-5, it seems reasonable to ask for this,
