So someone has to develop another list of country and language codes,
and then a non-commercial service performs transformations. Hmmm...
No, maybe we should just scrap the whole thing, and let developers use
URIs to represent countries, languages, and combinations thereof.
Country and language codes are up there with MIME types in the list of
"someone thought this needed a registry", when registries of all sorts
are of course fragile and evil - as this very moment demonstrates.
