Yes, "(Congo)" is the Republic of the Congo, Congo-Brazzaville.
IIRC those languages/locales simply were earlier supported and just
later the "(Democratic Republic of the Congo)" locales were added.

Geez.. that's a mess. We currently have
LANGUAGE_USER_AKA 0x0677 axk-CF - no entry in language list
LANGUAGE_USER_AKA_CONGO 0x8277 axk-CG "Aka (Congo)"
But the 'axk' ISO 639 code actually is Yaka, not Aka,
'soh' Aka seems to have only 300 native speakers according to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sillok_language and is spoken in Sudan,
we did not want to introduce that in this case and also have no entries
I'll adjust that to "Yaka (Congo)" and also add axk-CF to the language
list with "Yaka (Central African Republic)".
Thanks for pointing out.
