The vast majority of languages are ones nobody here will ever hear of, and for historical reasons the "market" for languages, so to speak, is extremely Eurocentric.
But it is those obscure ones which people love to add, because they can boast about "interest" to look worldly without ever doing anything with it. For example, I remember two languages being added that only existed between 7 - 9AD. In my view, that list should be for helping people find others who speak the same and for resources. Perhaps some kind of justifications would have to be made, the same as for adding a forum, like more than 2 people showing an interest.
