I hadn't drawn the connection to language codes. Yes, of course, "ko"
is the ISO 639 code for the Korean language, but there is no country
code "ko" -- North Korea is "kp" (for People's Republic of) and South
Korea is "kr" (for Republic of).
Similarly, the Vietnamese language is coded "vi" but the country is
coded "vn". (Before 1975, there was also a Democratic Republic of
Viet-Nam (South), coded "vd".)
