You at least have to fill in the form with the proposed record, I believe.

Internationalization is not a feature.
It is an architecture.

Subject: 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.
