Today I received the following e-mail. It demonstrates clearly that issues
in the ISO-639 standard are dealt with eventually.

Subject: ISO 639 JAC decision re mo/mol

 The ISO 639 Registration Authorities' Joint Advisory Committee has decided:

The identifiers *mo* and *mol* are deprecated

leaving *ro* and *ron/rum* the current language identifiers to be used for
the variant of the Romanian language also known as *Moldavian* and *Moldovan
* in English and *moldave* in French. (The identifier *ron* is used in the
ISO 639-2 T table; the identifier *rum* in the ISO 639-2 B table.)

The identifiers *mo* and *mol* will not be assigned to different items, and
recordings using these identifiers will not be invalid.

Best regards,

Håvard Hjulstad
