Well, I wrote the standard about a year ago, based in part on
http://src.chromium.org/svn/trunk/deps/third_party/icu46/source/data/mappings/ucmlocal.mk
which also listed hz-gb-2312 and iso-2022-kr at the time, so there was
probably another reason. I do not have a problem with removing them
from the specification personally if they are also removed from
implementations in due course.
