It is actually the case that the entry for Ladakhi in the MARC list uses a
collective language code for "Sino-Tibetan (Other)". The code for that
language group ("sit") is also available in ISO 639-2.

To request a new ISO 639-2 code, fill out the form at:
http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/iso639-2form.html
Please include justification that there are at least 50 documents in one 
institution or at least 10 in 5 institutions in this language.

We would then process the request through the ISO 639 Joint Advisory
Committee to define a separate language code for Ladakhi.
