@aisaac If I remember correctly, the GLD WG thought it would be good to recommend one particular set of URIs for `dct:language`, to help interoperability. After some discussion, the group decided to refer to LoC's URIs. The reasons were (a) that those URIs were the most authoritative, as LoC is the maintenance agency for ISO639-2 and (b) that LoC maintains _resolvable_ URIs for both ISO639-1 and ISO639-2.
