While I don't support this particular change, I do suggest that you act NOW 
if you want your opinion heard.  The LTRU WG is currently working on an 
update to RFC 4646 that should be published by the end of the year.  After 
that, there is talk of revising it again to incorporate ISO 639-6 code 
elements in some way, but there is NO guarantee that (or when) this will 
happen.  RFCs aren't reviewed, renewed, or amended at regularly scheduled 
intervals like ISO standards.  The successor to RFC 4646 might be in place 
for 20 years, for all we know.
