    The short answer is: "Any discussion of... anything... about the effort
    to update BCP 47, should be directed to the LTRU mailing list."

    The slightly longer answer is: Draft-ietf-ltru-4645bis-02 is structured
    the way it is for very many, very specific reasons. Some of them have
    to do with the way RFCs are REQUIRED to be structured, and some with the
    decisions made by the co-chairs of the LTRU Working Group, a group that
    is chartered within the IETF and REQUIRED to act in certain ways.

    Do not think you can read two or three e-mail messages about the LTRU
    effort and immediately understand its goals and history, and fire off a
    pseudo-knowledgeable response, as you have with Unicode and so many
    other subjects. Your lack of familiarity with the subject is screaming
    from the rooftops.
