IMHO we should have LTRU go ahead and do this.  When a new Registry is
installed, it should be as accurate and up-to-date as possible.  There is
no point in deferring this one change -- after all, in principle almost
*all* the new registry changes allowed by 4646bis could be deferred to
this list, but what's the point?

Furthermore, despite the technical distinction between LTRU and
ietf-languages, the person involved is the same, our very own Official
