I agree to remove the Preferred-Value field for YU in LTRU.
I also plainly agree with adding the comment contained in 46945bis-09 (2009-02-01), that also gives some useful informations about how to answer to my question about the progressive "narrowing" of (YU, YUG, 890) inside ISO 3166-1.

No action ever requires generating other comments for other entries. 
Comments are always totally optional.

If you really want to split this operation into two, one for removing the Preferred-Value and the other for adding the comment -- despite John Cowan's observation about sending IANA a replacement Registry which we know we will immediately want to amend -- then I will leave out the comment and let this group decide whether to add it after RFC 4646bis is published.

At least we appear to have achieved consensus on removing the Preferred-Value for 'YU'.  Four participants in favor and none opposed (including the Reviewer, excluding Randy and me) seems fairly decisive.
