I'd prefer a different code that people unaware of Odgen's Basic English couldn't possibly confuse with simplified English. Odgenbe. Obe1933. Whatever.
I think en-basiceng is better than en-ogden, and I think that misuse of the tag as in tlh-basiceng is less tempting to anyone than tlh-ogden might be.
