Is ISO 639-5 something I can look up on the Web, does it have
an URL not leading to a "pay for PDF" page ?  

So far ISO 639-2 "frs" vs. 639-3 "stq" is interesting enough,
adding more sources to the mix would increase the number of
sources for potential confusion.  Ideally the various branches
of ISO 639 should sort it out before it hits the review list.
