It shouldn't be necessary for any of them. All ISO 639-3 info for a
given code element can be found by visiting:
substituting the actual 3-letter code element for the 'xxx'. This works
even with ISO 639-2 and 639-5 collection code elements, though not with
2-letter ISO 639-1 code elements. In most cases, the RA's page contains
a link to an Ethnologue page with even more information about the
language (though of course it is not the only source).

In that case, I recommend you do nothing. If anyone here does have
knowledge of the Nepali or Oriya situation, they should speak up.
Otherwise, we will not add the extlangs.
