So we would have:
Description: Pinyin (Cameroon)
or similar. I think a better approach in this case would be to add a
Comments field, something like "Spoken in Cameroon." This would avoid
setting a precedent for adding encyclopedic information to the
Description, and would probably be more satisfactory to those who feel
the Description needs to match the ISO 639 name exactly.
It would have been easy enough to check 'pny' against ISO 639-3 or
Ethnologue, instead of assuming that we or the RA don't know the
difference between a language and a transcription system.
