According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-2_codes
there are separate language codes for Old English (ang), Middle
English (enm), Low German (nds), Old High German (goh), Middle
High German (gmh) and Alemannic (gsw), in addition to today's
English (en, eng) and German (de, deu, ger).
But is there any systematic approach to name and identify the
variants of German from the 19th century (Thier, illustrirte),
20th century (Tier, illustrierte), and 1996 reform (f, sss)? Are
there names and codes for the various historic stages of Nynorsk,
Danish with "maae", pre-1906 Swedish with "dt", etc.?
