No, it isn't. But then the glyphs in the Unicode Standard aren't
normative either, but 'z' just isn't going to be a glyph for LATIN
CAPITAL LETTER Q. It's just not that likely that ISO 639-3/RA will
change the meaning of code elements in a way which seriously contradicts
the information in the Ethnologue. They are, after all, basically the
same set of people.
