This change in the name of the language formerly known as simply 
"Aramaic" was announced to the list by Håvard Hjulstad in early May, but 
I delayed submitting the corresponding subtag change until I could 
determine the exact replacement names assigned by ISO 639-2, and the 
exact relationship between these names and those used in ISO 639-3.

Here is the new record, presented for a week's review before submission 
to IANA:

Type: language
Subtag: arc
Description: Official Aramaic (700-300 BCE)
Description: Imperial Aramaic (700-300 BCE)
Added: 2005-10-16

ISO 639-3 will use these same names, plus their inverted forms.
