I'm rather strongly of the opinion that this extra material does NOT 
belong in the registration forms archived by IANA.  The registration 
forms should be those that contributed to the approval of the subtags.

"The IANA Language Subtag Registry ("the registry") consists of a text

plus copies of the registration forms approved in accordance with the 
process described in Section 3.5."
