BTW, when is the 639-1 freeze going to happen, such that we can be
guaranteed that there will be no additions to -1 of languages already
mentioned in -2?
There are no plans to "freeze" 639-1 more than it already is. Additions to
639-1 of items that are not added to 639-2 will happen only in "extreme"
cases, if at all.
