The subtag registry includes the suppress-script value 'Guru' for Punjabi.

Type: language
Subtag: pa
Description: Panjabi
Description: Punjabi
Added: 2005-10-16
Suppress-Script: Guru

Since Punjabi is written in Gurmukhi, Devanagari, and in a variant of Perso-Arabic script, the inclusion of this suppress-script designation is unfortunate:

Having a suppress-script value when multiple scripts are in use for a language complicates processing of the language tags.

Is there a process to remove a suppress-script designation?

Thank you,
