Need to remove some zlm dialects; represented elsewhere

ISO 639-3: 

It turns out the current list of dialects, while fundamentally sound, includes some 'dialects' that are listed as separate languages/ISO codes elsewhere: • Orang Hulu is a synonym for Jakun [jak] (Collins 1999; Tachimoto 2001) • Orang Kuala is a synonym for Duano [dup] (Sandbukt 1983; Anderbeck 2012) • Lubu [lcf] is listed separately References: Anderbeck, Karl. 2012.

Editorial Action

We will remove these dialect names from Malay [zlm] in Malaysia and add them as alternate names for the languages they actually relate to.  These changes will appear in the next edition of the Ethnologue.
