According to standard for DVB (ETSI EN 300 468 V1.7.1, Annex F):

Annex F (informative):
ISO 639 Language Descriptor for "original audio"
Where audio in two languages is broadcast, TR 101 154 [10] specifies the order in which the ISO 639 Language
Descriptors shall be used in order to associate a language with its respective audio channel. In some cases, broadcasters
may wish to signal that one of the channels contains the audio in the original language of the source, without specifying
the exact language being used. This "original audio" language may be signalled with an ISO 639 language code of
"qaa", from the "local use" area of ISO 639.

Would it be possible to add this pair
qaa / "Original audio"
to source file /src/text/iso-639_def.h?

Please find attached a patch.
