To paraphrase myself from earlier, if ISO 639-3/RA is considering a
change with which one or more of us disagrees -- say, hypothetically,
converting 'deu' to a macrolanguage -- then we should lobby ISO 639-3/RA
to reject the change request, not discuss it to death on this list
before it has even been requested.
Please let's change the Subject line when appropriate.
