Fine, Michael; you don't think we need more alpha-2 identifiers. Then we
know where you stand whenever this issue comes up. However, others have a
different opinion, and alpha-2 identifiers are (still) being requested. The
JAC will consider and vote on alpha-2 identifiers also in the future, and
this type of argument is of very little use for the JAC.
