I think this is very badly thought through, sorry Doug. I'm very
busy just at the momemt, but I think this at least is not the way to
handle these linguistic entities.
I also do not think the Ethnologue 3-letter codes for Sign Languages
are the best way to handle those languages, and I do not think that
ISO 639-3 should include those tags. I think there has been a lack of
coordination with the Deaf community (apart from what was registered
under RFC 3066) and that we should proceed more carefully here. I
have already mentioned that we should do this in consultation with
people at Gallaudet University.
