I appreciate the effort to differentiate from the simple term , and realized totally that odgen1933 is too long, however repeating the 1st 3 letters of the parent language tag doesn't help with that differentiation.  I'd prefer a different code that people unaware of Odgen's Basic English couldn't possibly confuse with simplified English.  Odgenbe.  Obe1933.  Whatever.

(Though again I think it deserves a primary language tag).

This is why I haven’t proposed “basic” but “basiceng” and why I don’t support “simple” on its own. 

ogden1933 is not valid due to its length.
