No. The Language SubCom should not have the authority to close
projects; that would give too much control to a single group with a
very particular expertise (figuring out what constitutes an
independent language). I see no reason why such a decision could not
be made or at least informed through a public poll, similar to the way
we decide on opening new projects.
Peace & Love,
