A codification date, I believe, isn't attached 
"in anticipation" of something, but in order to 
free the (sub)tag from the time-context. Or, 
indeed, one might "anticipate" using the 
registry in, say, 100 years from now, when many 
subtags of the "standard" nature would loose 
their meaning. And, by the way, yes, one 
actually can produce texts complying with yet to 
be published codification.
