Duplicates between ISO 639-3 and ISO 639-4? Whatever are you talking
about. ISO 639-3 has a code table, while ISO 639-4 will not. Both will
define terms, etc., some of which are duplicates, just as is the case
between 639-3 and 639-1, but these are being developed in a coherent
manner. I suggest that you get clarification before commenting further.
