I think this is a good idea. For the sake of consistency, we should
choose a single standard to follow rather than a hodge-podge of newer
standards, older (although still valid) standards, and ad hoc codes we
made up on the spot (als, nrm) and custom codes (bat-smg, roa-tara,
roa-rup, fiu-vro, map-bms, be-x-old). It also seems potentially
confusing to me that we have codes that overlap, for example na.wp and
nap.wp, ro.wp and roa-rup.wp, etc.
Aside from simplifying the process of selecting new language codes,
what value does consistency have in this situation?
