That's a given. ISO 639-2, 693-3, and 639-5 are all drawn from the
same TLA space.

We are eventually going to have to decide what to do about ISO 639-3.
Do we allow all 639-3 tags in the first place, or do we allow them
only as extlangs? Saying "both" would be most obnoxious, since
every ISO 639-3 code is either identical to a 639-2 one or is
subsumed (sometimes badly) by one.
