I don't think this standard is supposed to solve the vendor problems  
you have.

It is up to Norway and Norwegian users to convince vendors to change  
their tagging habits, I guess. You DO have Noregs Mållag and  
Språkrådet. If you mobilized those organizations to get on to Apple  
(or anyone else) to deal with the problem of no/nb.

I think we should encode hognorsk with the recommended prefix nn-
