Thanks very much Bjoern, that looks promising.

For some of the i18n topics which seek to identify "typical" or "correct"
values for each and every country or culture in the world, this may be the way
to go. When we attempt to list encodings, language identifiers, scripts, etc.
used in some number of markets, we invariably see continual demand for
expansion and refinement of the list. Allowing the community at large to add or
correct list contents seems to me to be better than attempting to have a single
editor devoted to continually maintaining the page or having one that grows
stale or seems incomplete to the w3c community.

I might be interested in creating the initial structure for such a page and
then letting the i18n community move it forward.

What do other people think of this approach?
