If you reference BCP 47 there is no need to say "or its successor", since
BCP 47 is always the most recent set of documents. I had previously
suggested the formulation:

"[BCP 47] which is currently represented by [RFC 3066bis]"

If you reference draft-ietf-ltru-registry-14.txt (i.e. RFC 3066bis), then
you'll want to use the successor formula.
