If anything it is proof that a quality standard allows for change.
In Michael Everson, a member of the standards world, we have someone who
was asked to become a member of the Wikimedia language committee. Over the
years he has provided us with several important services. This is only one.
That's fantastic !
Proof, if it was ever needed, that the Wikimedia movement can have an effect on
the "outside world" other than collecting and providing information ; Wikimedia
Armenia actually took the leading part in bettering an international standard !
My most heartfelt congratulations
This is really great! Congratulations to this success to both of you,
Wikimedia Armenia and the Gulbenkian Foundation!
I really appreciate to see that creating and preserving Free Knowledge can
have such an influence on official language policies :)

I'm pleased to announce that the efforts of Wikimedia Armenia to get
separate ISO 639-3 language code for Western Armenian  were finally
succeeded. SIL International, the ISO 639-3 Registration Authority, decided
to create the code element [hyw] for Western Armenian.
