Background and additional information:

This is based on a proposal that was submitted on 2002-12-22 and circulated
to the JAC for comments on 2003-01-10. No negative feedback has been
received, except one general opinion that no new alpha-2 identifiers should
be assigned.

The identifiers on this ballot, which deviate from the identifiers that were
originally proposed, are harmonized with Ethnologue.

The names are probably quite relyable. The proposer did not include the
English and French names without "creole", but these names are found in a
number of sources.
