2019 being the hex code for headache? Either way it might make sense to list both, in the manner you suggest. No telling if someone might resort to 02BC (=migrane?), but maybe we don't have to go there. N' sort of functions as a unit in Latin transcriptions of Manding (meaning "I," 1st person singular), not standardized for the kind of apostrophe used, AFAIK, even when used as part of the name N'Ko.

The draft 639-3 tables show "N'Ko" with a straight ASCII apostrophe. 
The current Registry has "Description: N&#x2019;Ko" and I believe it got that way through registration on the part of ietf-languages.

For 4646bis, is it correct to leave "N&#x2019;Ko" in the Registry, but add "N'Ko" with the ASCII apostrophe, and make that one first in the order due to its role as 639-3 reference name?
