We should not be second guessing. If the MARC community tells us (or, rather, tells the 639-3 RA and JAC) they are not dependent on assuming that Latgalian is encompassed by lav, fine; otherwise, the onus lies on the JAC to ensure that they don't make changes that create risks for consumers of ISO 639 such as MARC.
That's my opinion.

Even so. My question stands. Surely this can be quantified.
