Excerpt from change request document:

The name is a dialect or dialect group name, and therefore incorrect for a language designation. It should be changed to the general language name. There is almost no disagreement among linguists about what the general language names for Mayan languages are. The majority of the Ethnologue/ISO names are, however, dialect names. Please see section 4 for an elaboration of the languages according to family divisions and branches.

[RA comment: the name form Quiché in Spanish spelling will also be retained for historical reference with regard to the standard.]
