Very interesting. Thanks.

Thinking out loud: I am wondering how complete it is? For example,  
ISO639 was relatively incomplete a few years back, but now that SIL  
has taken over management of it, it is complete (or nearly so).  
Specifically, is there sufficient scripts to cover all the ISO639  
languages? For example, Burmese is not part of Unicode yet (SIL  
translators are working on getting it in). Which script would it use?
