(Jeremy Brown as the original contributor of Congolese locales on Cc)

Unfortunately no answer from Jeremy, but having dug deeper into this the
current situation makes sense.

LANGUAGE_USER_AKA        0x0677  axk-CF  - no entry in language list
LANGUAGE_USER_AKA_CONGO  0x8277  axk-CG  "Aka (Congo)"

The confusing part here is the name Aka. Aka is the autonym (how people
call the language themselves) for Yaka, the ISO 639-3 name.
This is also
and is spoken in both Central African Republic and Congo.

But the 'axk' ISO 639 code actually is Yaka, not Aka,

LANGUAGE_USER_YAKA         0x0683  iyx-CG  "Yaka"

That additionally exists but is not Yaka/Aka but "Yaka (Congo)"

So I'll not remap axk-CG to iyx-CG like the idea was earlier, but keep
the locales and add a language list entry for
axk-CF "Aka (Central African Republic)"
and change iyx-CG to "Yaka (Congo)" thus we can add
yaf-CD "Yaka (Democratic Republic of Congo)"
