And also in the normative text file, which is important:


However, it's not yet in the 639-3 data files, or on the 639-3 Web site.
I don't know if 639-3/RA plans to add this code element soon or wait for
the annual change series, which is probably two or more months away.

Per Section 3.4, item 12.D, we do add this new subtag based on its
inclusion in 639-2, even though it's not in 639-3 (although this
scenario was "not supposed to occur in the future," meaning now). I will
post forms shortly.
