PROPOSAL: Remove Deprecation on "sh" in the IANA subtag registry

There is an anomaly in the upcoming registry. The ISO 639-3 code
corresponding to 'sh' is not deprecated, it is an ordinary macrolanguage
like many ('no', 'zh', 'ar',...)

Yet in the registry, we have 'sh' as Deprecated. The new version of BCP 47
follows the status of languages in ISO 639-3, and for consistency "sh"
should not be deprecated. (From a usage standpoint, the code "sh" is also as
useful as any other macrolanguage.)

I request the change in status.
