Well, I don't have a vote; but in my humble belief, 639-5 is something that should be completely rethought. It confuses people (why use alpha-3 codes which look identical to language codes?). And it is nowhere near complete enough to be useful. I know archives which use the LINGUIST set of alpha-4 codes for these very reasons.
