Of course. The real issue in this respect are entropic trends. Thus, a
conscious effort to resurrect languages simply as a matter of taste
and identity and/or to put deliberately existing ones on diverging
paths are quite much within the self-determination area. Or are we
afraid of the "artificial" side of it?
