No no.  What Doug doesn't like is the idea of explicitly specifying
'sr-Latn' and 'sr-Cyrl' as prefixes along with 'sr'.  He says it's
redundant, which is true:  I just think the redundancy helps clarity in
this case.

The present impossibility of giving a scientific explanation is no proof
that there is no scientific explanation. The unexplained is not to be
identified with the unexplainable, and the strange and extraordinary
nature of a fact is not a justification for attributing it to powers
above nature.  --The Catholic Encyclopedia, s.v. "telepathy" (1913)
