Improving alternate names

Alternate Names
ISO 639-3: 

*Remove Khami - this is used only for Eastern Khumi [cek] (their pronunciation of the word for people) *Remove Khimi - this is used only for Mro-Khimi [cmr] (their pronunciation of the word for people) *Remove Common Khumi - this name is not used in the literature or in the community. This name is confusing and unhelpful because it seems to support Khumi being endorsed in Eastern Khumi areas. *Khweymi should be marked as a derogatory name. It is a Rakhine mispronunciation of the name to refer to a "dog's tail" in Rakhine. However, since this name is in the official ethnic group list, it should not be removed from this list.
