Thanks for the note.
There is no value in registering all the different names that have been
given to this charsets in various publications, unless there is at least
intent but better yet an implementation using this name for MIME content
labeling.
The sites you point out do not indicate that the given name is intended to
be directly used as a MIME charset label.

I don't object to adding aliases, I just don't see the value at this point.

Chris..
