Excerpt from change request document:

Col (pronounced 'chole' or 'chool') is the name the speakers of this variety of Malayic use for themselves in the areas surveyed, with the exception of the Col speakers from Lembak Delapan, a small pocket of Col speakers near Bengkulu City. The other regions where Col is spoken were not familiar with the term Lembak, but had heard of the term Saling and Sindang Kelingi. The general term used by this group for its language and by neighboring language groups is "Col", their word for "there isn't" or "none". If Col is not used, we recommend using the name "Sindang" as this is the name used in the government's linguistic literature on the language and is placed in front of the name of the dialect of Col under consideration, i.e. Sindang Kelingi, Sindang Beliti...The term Lembak should be changed to an alternate name or dropped as the majority of the Col population has not heard of this term and for those living in or near to South Sumatra, it brings to mind the Musi dialect Belide.
