I interpret this as an argument against adding subtags based on ISO 
639-5 collection codes, more than against the lack of public 
availability of ISO 639-5.

LTRU is the place to discuss whether certain ISO standards should be 
included in RFC 4646bis or not.  That issue was decided some time ago, 
but it's hardly unusual for LTRU to go back and revisit closed topics.
