John,

Fair enough, Hant was a poor example.
I was aiming at a simple implementation idea based against the registry,
that might add some value and explanation to users, without too much
additional work.

For example if the script chosen were "Cyrl" then languages such as 
Abkhazian, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Kazakh etc.. would be seen as relevant.
