Same here: I don't know of a better solution, otherwise I would have implemented it. Probably a mw:Lua module would be more efficient, someone should test on mw: or m:. Eventually, we should probably implement this function in <languages />.

Handling of all ISO 639-3 data with their BCP 47 extensions in a LUA module is too elusive for LUA. I tried something like this some 2 years ago and were not allowed to save the module due to its size :-( Handlng only the selection of language codes used in translatewiki.net should imo be possible. So as to not duplicate much data and keep things smoothly automatic, I likely prefer the <language> approach.
