Ok yes, makes sense. I will do that once I manage to gather more
documents and info, which should happen in Spring.

So, to continue the analogy with English: the -oxendict subtype refers
to the general style right? What I mean is: in the same way that the
Oxford Dictionary
- has different editions with (I suppose marginally) different spelling
- does not encompass all possible words of all possible strings tagged
with -oxendict

I could propose a -dictcamb (for Dictionnaire Cambodgien), which could refer to:
- the general work, not a specific edition
- a general style of spelling, defined by a dictionary that doesn't
encompass all possible words (especially loan ones, even though it
refers to Pali a lot)

right?

I think the main difference is that there will likely not be any new
edition of the Dictionnaire Cambodgien (we could assume that if
someone was to take over the project of a new edition, they would not
keep the French name), and that people usually refer to the 1967
(last) edition. In that case, what would be the customary type of
langtag? "-dica1967" or "-dictcamb"?

Best,
