Registration forms for description changes

Here is the relevant material from 28 proposed registration forms which 
would implement the changes to Description fields that I described in an 
earlier post:

The Language Subtag Registration Form is shown in Section 3.5 (Figure 5) 
of RFC 3066bis.  We haven't seen much of this form yet because most of 
the changes to the Registry so far have been automatic -- triggered by 
changes to an ISO standard -- and use the Figure 4 form instead.  The 
listings shown below are only for Section 3, the interesting part.  In 
the real forms, Sections 1 and 2 would be the same for each form, and 
Sections 4 through 6 would be blank.

All Description fields below are marked [ADD], [RETAIN], or [DELETE] as 
appropriate.  I can't find a section in RFC 3066bis that states exactly 
how this is to be specified in the registration form, though I'm sure 
it's in there somewhere.
