This problem of delays is important. I understand that ISO 639-6 FDIS 
will be published soon. Will it include, or will you put online by 
then, the tables you announced a few times over the years "for the 
end of the year". Actually, I do not want to tease you on this. And I 
am sure you have improved David's list a lot. But these compact codes 
could be used in some IDN related format to pass information on the 
particulars of the environment of an IDN and possibly help the current debate ?
