3066bis says:

# Maintenance of the registry requires that as codes are assigned or
# withdrawn by ISO 639, ISO 15924, ISO 3166, and UN M.49, the Language
# Subtag Reviewer MUST evaluate each change, determine whether it
# conflicts with existing registry entries, and submit the information
# to IANA for inclusion in the registry.

It doesn't say that he has to notice the changes himself, as long as he
evaluates them.  And there is even a fallback in the next sentence:

# If a change takes place and the Language Subtag Reviewer does not
# do this in a timely manner, then any interested party MAY use the
# procedure in Section 3.5 (Registration Procedure for Subtags) to
# register the appropriate update.

We have plenty of resources to get done what needs to be done.  I don't
see anything to worry about.
