I really don't think it is a good idea to get involved in
second-guessing the techniques and expertise of ISO 639-3/RA.
Our effort would be better spent (a) on this list, helping the Reviewer
evaluate user-sumitted subtag proposals or (b) on the LTRU list, helping
shape the way RFC 4646bis will use ISO 639-3.
