I must admit I entirely agree with Michael. I don't speak Swedish, but I have close relations with Swedish linguists. And there's not a one who doesn't say that Elfdalian is about as comprehensible to them as Frisian is to Dutch. Sociolinguistics should have nothing to do with it. The decision is clearly wrong.
