For several weeks before an IETF meeting, draft submission is closed.

I haven't officially tracked any issues, because they are still
too much in flux.

I think there are several areas of issues. Doug has sent a list
that he need resolved for his next draft a few days ago.

I think one reason is that most people do not know very much about
639-6. If you don't mind, could you send a short summary of how
639-6 addresses things such as written/spoken/signed/orthographies/writing
systems etc? With concrete examples, indicating whether these are
currently in the draft or are hypothetical. I think that would help
the WG to have a good disucussion.
