Having references to a dictionary or two that follow the new spelling 
would indeed be highly desirable. However, please note that this is not 
required for a registration. In particular, it is not necessary that 
such a dictionary (or word list) be online. This is even more so if 
experts (such as António) assert that the description is detailed enough.

[For the older spelling conventions, it shouldn't be difficult to come 
up with references; there must have been quite a few dictionaries that 
follow the relevant convention. The only problem might be the newest one.]

ietf-languages at They are essentially the same, and there's 
no need to get every message twice.
