I didn't say that we have to register these in a hurry. I just checked
the de- cases, and it took between two and three months from the initial
submission to your agreement mail. We wouldn't necessarily need that
much time for Mark's cases (at least not for some of them), and even
if we did, it would still be much faster than an RFC 3066 revision.

My main point to Mark is 'start now'.

Well, you proposed a fait accomplit on ISO-639 above. So why not a
fait accomplit on 15924?

Regards,    Martin.
