Dear IETF list,

The reference name for this language was established by part 2 of ISO 639.
You would need to contact the Registrar for part 2 to change it, and he
will likely not agree, as the reference names are set at the Library of
Congress. That being said, there is some interest in having a category for
"the name of the language in the language" in ISO 639. What has not been
determined is whether it would need to be in the local script or in Roman
letters. So, Nihongo and Bangla will be added in the near future.
