Language codes

Dear Doug,

I think that it would be a necessary move to have a text of RFC 5645 as clean as possible, even if the erratum to be done ("ten", not "nine" and addition of a bullet-point paragraph concerning "SU") has no real impact  on the content of the Registry.
In my opinion, you are far better placed to take care of this technical erratum.

Technically, it's not possible to change an RFC once it has been published.  You can file an erratum against the RFC, which is then accessible along with the document from the RFC Editor site.  See for instructions.  Or, if you like, I will file it.

If the erratum mentions that "nine" should be "ten", then it should also add a bullet-point paragraph for 'SU' similar to the existing one for 'FX'.

Please note, again, that this issue does not in any way affect the contents of the Registry, nor the process by which it was constructed, since 'SU' is already in the Registry.
