If folks feel this is really important, please submit it
to the ietf at mailing list during the IETF last call
of RFC 4646bis.  Please note that the IETF last call has *not*
started yet - the document is still in the hands of the IESG.

Discussion of specific text for such a proposal belongs on
the ltru at mailing list.  Though as a technical contributor
I have some sympathy for making such a change, as co-chair of ltru
I am ill-disposed towards making *any* further changes to the
drafts without overwhelming arguments that those changes are
critically needed.
