If we sit on these, do we risk running afoul of the requirement in
Section 3.3 that the Reviewer must add these "in a timely manner"? We
have no idea how long the RFC Editor will take to publish the revised
Note that the existing Registry already has 6 new and/or changed script
subtags (Lana, Lisu, Nkgb, Plrd, Tglg, Zinh), added in March and April,
but not present in draft-4645bis, which was submitted in February. I
suggested adding these changes to the draft during AUTH48, along with
any others that may occur before publication (such as the present
batch), but was told by the co-chairs that this would not be appropriate
and they should be added as I have suggested here.
I have no problem with waiting on these 3 new changes and any subsequent
ones, and limiting the special cases to the 6 listed above, but I want
to make sure nobody is going to cry "process failure" if we do.
