Because "consensus" has nothing to do with adding subtags that 
correspond to code elements in the core standards.

Really, this is quite different from the individual-request case.  The 
Reviewer has little or no say in whether a subtag like 'frr' should be 
added.  Even if he questioned the scholarship or doubted that 'frr' was 
really a separate language from 'fy', he must still approve the subtag 
because of its existence in ISO 639.

This goes for the list as well.  It makes no difference whether we like 
this subtag, or build "consensus" around adding it.

Are I off-base on this?  Is everyone else reading Sections 3.3 and 3.5 
differently from the way I am?
