I guess this is a simple one.
BR = Brazil
PT = Portugal
Im from Brazil and there's in fact some difference between both.
Brazilian portuguese comes from Portugal. SO pt_PT came first.

But, we have 10 million people living in portugal and 200 millions living in
I guess BR one should be set as standard.
