The way you are using these indeed doesn't make sense. These are for
mentioning in the text (as [xxx] only), and then in the reference
list using xxx as a label to find the right entry.

As a separate issue, please update
http://www.w3.org/International/core/langtags/rfc3066bis.html.
The matching draft has passed IETF Last Call and is now going
through the IESG approval process. It doesn't make sense to
create such a redirection page if you don't keep it up to date :-(.
The current version of the draft is -15.

Also, the filename of that page and title are confusing.
The title is "Internet-Draft: BCP 47". This is almost a
contradition, and quite temporary. It would be better to
have a page for BCP 47, and describe the current state.

Also, the text "Latest Version" should be taken away
from the IANA registry. This is a living document, not
a frozen one, so "Latest Version" is confusing. There are
no other versions. It would be similar to writing
Latest Version: Today's weather.

Regards,    Martin.
