Updated Registry posted

IANA has posted a revised copy of the Language Subtag Registry, 
containing the new script subtags based on additions to ISO 15924, plus 
an apostrophe change to Ethiopic and a correction to grandfathered tag 
'Amis (now Amis with no apostrophe).


For some reason, even though the new subtags were submitted to IANA with 
File-Date and Added records of 2006-06-28, IANA has decided to change 
the File-Date of the Registry to 2006-07-31, while assigning Added dates 
of 2006-07-21 to the new subtags.  Thus the dates used by IANA match 
neither the dates on the registration requests nor each other.  The 
File-Date is not required to match the Added date of any individual 
record -- an updated Registry might incorporate only changes to existing 
records, which would keep their existing Added date -- but I cannot 
think of any reason why IANA would have made these changes.
