you are right. But the combination of ISO 639, ISO 3166 and ISO 15924 is
the matter I consider. I see no big problem in piling more or less precise
or erroneous lists: this hurts no one and permits the main vendors to
proceed to their world market repartition. Now, the problem is when one
discusses the possibilty of a default script associated to a language: does
the script exist? ISO 15924 is a list of script names. I cannot associate a
name to a language name without some kind of correspondancy rule I can
check. I think reasonable to say that I can associate the name of a script
to the name of a language if they share identical charsets when using (all)
the encoding scheme(s) accepted by the programmers community?
