Yes, but there must be a better way to get a change throughout Debian
than to have to do a bugreport to every package. What I need is to
establish that nb_NO and nn_NO are the official names and then I might

Because they are two different written languages. It is like asking why
should we have German, Austrian and Swiss (german) locales.
