It occurs to me that we should have some process established here: in
the case of a ballot for a macrolanguage:
- It should be clearly stated that we are voting on a macrolanguage.
Either that, or perhaps that should be something we are voting on. (I

- It should be clear what individual languages the proposed
macrolanguage would encompass.

languages are Hindi and Urdu, though I hadn't thought about it being a
macrolanguage until Rebecca mentioned it.
