  Actually, that same file gives a partial answer to your first question (I
don't know if you noticed that -- I realized it just after sending my first
e-mail), since it explicitely mentions that scc and scr have been deprecated in
favor of srp and hrv, respectively (on 2008-06-28).  So it seems ISO 639-2
really intended on retiring those two codes.
