What is the estimated timeline for ISO 639 JAC to finalize these 
"post-preliminary" changes to the code list?  I'm asking from the 
standpoint of using them to generate a new draft-4645bis.

(Before anyone points out that I can always write a draft and change it 
later, because integers are cheap, remember that draft-4645bis requires 
generating a huge code list from the 639-3 data and manually merging it 
with the existing Registry.  It's not a trivial effort and I'd rather do 
it at points of reasonable stability.)
