That fact that you think your time, in your circumstances, might be
better spent, does not mean that I think my time spent marking up
taxonomic names with a language code would not be well spent.
In other words: by all means object to proposals if you think that they
are logically flawed, but please don't do so because you don't think
you'll use them.
