Yes, please.

Although the changes in 4646bis should only affect the contents of the 
registry, referencing the up-to-date RFC (when published) will help 
users who need to use extended language subtags (for example, to 
distinguish Chinese spoken dialects).

Note that a reference to BCP 47 does this automagically.
