    The Suppress-Script information is known to be incomplete. Additional
    contributions of knowledge are always welcome.

    The basic requirement is that the script in question must be used
    "overwhelmingly" to write the language in question -- not necessarily
    100% of the time, but certainly 51% would not qualify.

    I strongly recommend that further discussion on this topic be moved to
    the ietf-languages list, which exists to discuss registration of such

    The list is the same list as, which is specified in RFC 3066bis; one is
    simply a redirect of the other.
