POLL: lablang/engelang (clarification)

A couple of people have noted that i didn't properly define the definition
of the term that the poll is for. So, here is an attempt to define it:

[term here] (n) - a language without exclusively naturalistic design goals
(generally named 'artlangs', which try to emulate 'natlangs') or exclusively
auxiliary design goals (generally named 'auxlangs', which try to solve
world's communication problems). Design goals include experimental, logical,
or engineered design goals. The design goals encompass a wider range of
goals than artlangs or auxlangs, and can include some artlang/auxlang goals
(such as being naturalistic and solving communication problems).

languages included in this category would include typologically bizarre
languages, non-naturalistic languages, barely pronouncable languages,
languages for computer translation, and logical languages (loglangs).
