I approve it. 

Whatever scenario for language mixing has been proposed to the CLDR is not, I think, descriptive of contact dialects used for literary purposes, as has been demonstrated adequately for Spanglish. I don’t know what kind of “locale mixing” has been proposed for them to want their solution. Maybe it’s something as unremarkable as “Khakas language user who uses Russian-language software”. Who knows? 

Anyway, “spanglis” is good to go.
