I was thinking (before Frank wrote to endorse it) that 'nihon' might be
the best choice, with "ja-Latn" as the Prefix. I know it means "Japan,"
but in this particular context its meaning should be clear.
I think there has to be a separate registration form for each request,
so the form Frank submitted in 009311.html will need to be split up (as
well as reflecting the new proposal for Nihon-Shiki), but we can help
I'd like to tip a virtual hat to Frank for taking the time to understand
and work within our process and answer everyone's questions. We don't
always get this lucky.
