Maybe DG, EA, IC, &Co. are bad enough, and the "eur" example
is overkill.  But if something like "eur" arrives here today
(as 639-2 bug) the 4646 rules only say "must be registered".

The reviewer could refuse to do this.  But maybe he should
be *entitled* to delay registration until it is clear how
serious the constructed language, disputed territory, typo
on the UN page, or what else actually is.

If that's the case they failed to mention it in TUS 5.0 9.1:
"U+0951..U+0954 are a set of combining marks used in
 transcription of Sanskrit scripts"
