I'm not talking about dialects or legal standing. I'm talking 
about renaming thousands of URLs, breaking incoming links from 
other websites, for no good reason.  Once assigned, good URLs such 
as no.wikipedia.org and et.wikipedia.org should not be changed.

ISO can decide tomorrow that English should be xy and French 
should be ab.  We shouldn't follow such changes.  It is a totally 
different issue that we consult ISO when we open a new project.
