You will, with some help from me, and hopefully from John and Mark and Doug and Peter. And anyone else on this list who wants to help. 

I have already written some argument, but as I say, we need to test this situation. Our standard should supplement the ISO standard, but where the RA has made an obvious mistake, they need to be told that their choice is going to cause problems if we go ahead and assign a code which they will certainly approve later anyway.

Data tagged with our subtag now will have that tag deprecated later. This is not a good idea.
