Hoi,
The practise of dropping upper case in the ISO-15934 is a MediaWiki
practice that is incorrect. In the grand scheme of things it is only a
minor matter.

Mong is the correct code for the Mongolian script. The reason why mn-mong
is not there is that it does not make sense to associate a scriot with a
macro language, mn is in itself NOT a language it includes multiple
languages and it is why it will not get support for a new language for a
new project.

So in conclusion, mn-mong can be understood to mean any Mongolian text
written in the Mongolian script. In the current understanding of languages
it is not precise and it is why it will not be approved for a new WMF
project.
Thanks,

GerardM
