Excerpt from change request document:

There is no evidence to support the existence of Talai as the name of a distinct language. Talai is the name of a region. In the Ethnologue 15th ed., Talai has been closely associated with Markweeta, née Endo: "'Marakwet' is a cover term for Talai and Endo." Thus it is appropriate to map any existing usage of the code element for Talai to Markweeta, which now refers to the whole language area and its dialects (whereas "Endo" referred only to the northern dialect area)
