Does this mean that ISO 639 changed the reference name for "ikt" from
"Western Canadian Inuktitut" to "Inuinnaqtun", in the process
relegating the original reference name "Western Canadian Inuktitut" to
an additional name?
Because that is what the proposed language subtag record seems to
imply, yet that isn't what I understood the change to be.
