How about this: instead of:
... which is 'lv' in the Language Subtag Registry...
... which is represented by ISO 639-1 'lv' in the Language Subtag
I think it would be best to point out that 'lv' is not only the 639-1
code element, it is what the Registry uses. Otherwise, people who
haven't read any version of BCP 47 may fail to see the connection.
