I got the following from the RA's Web site:

This is the official site of the ISO 639-2 Registration Authority and 
thus is the only one authorized by ISO. If you have questions concerning 
ISO 639-2 please contact us at:

Library of Congress

E-mail: iso639-2 at
Phone: +1 202 707 6237
FAX: +1 202 707 0115

For general discussion about ISO language codes, write to: 
iso639 at

Either of those addresses would probably be better than 
ietf-languages at for someone who wants to suggest improvements to 
the way ISO 639-2 (and presumably -5) organize languages into
