I assume you mean spelling; you seem to be the only one selling anything 
here. Please review the thread: A number of us (including me at one 
time) suggested ways of extending a language tag to encompass additional 
data beyond the fact of it being (or even purporting to be) a scientific 
name. I have come to realize (through Jim's posts, not your own) that 
this is overloading, and that a simple language tag has the benefit of 
being useful even for fictitious scientific names.

Although I am inclined toward a language tag, please don't count my 
support until you have a proposal for review.
