Excerpt from change request document:

The situation of the languages of eastern southern New England in the 17 and 18 centuries is a little confusing... Given the certainty that Narragansett does not belong with Mohegan-Pequot and the uncertainty of whether or not it belongs with Massachusett, it seems a prudent idea to give Narragansett its own place within ISO 639-3.
