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

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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aka_language
and is spoken in both Central African Republic and Congo.

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)"
