And are there acceptable short enough versions of the language names
in the languages themselves e.g. I would reckon Eng would be
recognised for English as itself rather than the iso code. Iso code
could be a last resort if there isn't an agreeable short version in
the language itself.

Uk defintely would be a bad idea for Ukranian, I would hope укр makes
at least some sense
