ISO 15924 code elements and script subtags identify scripts, not
languages. 'Sind' identifies the Sindhi writing system described at
http://std.dkuug.dk/jtc1/sc2/wg2/docs/n3767.pdf . The fact that the
Sindhi language is often written in the Arabic or Devanagari writing
systems has nothing to do with this.
