Consider Mongolian, where there is no simple mapping between Cyrillic script and
Mongolian script (cyri represents the modern language directly, mong represents
Classical Mongolian, sort of the way English orthography represents the 16th
century language).

If the user only reads mn-cyri, then documents in mn-mong might as well be
in a foreign language. This is something that must be represented properly.
