> when autotranslated by Google translates “Hosszú György” as “George Long”. Clearly that’s not desirable (even if from one point of view it might be “accurate") — but there’s no way to use language tagging to achieve “protection” of the personal name, is there?

  I also thought of personal names, because that’s the closest analogy I
could think of to binomial names.  Clearly someone requesting a subtag
for personal names would have to make a very strong case indeed.

  That said, binomial names are in a way more generic (pun intended)
than personal names, so it’s obviously not exactly the same either.
