Working in a ghetto is always possible, but 
unsurprisingly not always desired.

I have competely no stake in this, but from my 
point of view there's a request for an IETF 
code, which, though maybe stretching the 
definition of the language a little, seems like 
a valid request to have standardised means of 
tagging of the very specific and well-delimited 
linguistic content.

I have mentioned rules only to name the formal 
disctinction of the binomials-speak, so to 
speak, from mere vocabulary.

And I do not understand why are some of the 
matters (primarily, pronounciation and 
wikipedia) dragged into that discussion at all.
