I think you speak about family of languages?
Good luck with ISO language codes which does not even
define them, and contain many duplicate codes even in
the Alpha-2 space (he/iw, in/id), or unprecize codes
matching sometimes very imprecize families of languages
overlapping other language codes...
Until it is demonstrated that a language needs such fix
in Unicode support tables, it's best to just say that these
fixes are needed for some recognized language codes and
that applications are allowed to add their own "fixes" or
language tailorings, and that the existing language
tailorings in Unicode databases are just non-normative
