This comment would apply equally to XML, which also references RFC 3066.

The latest description in the Internationalisation activity also
represents 3066 are correct:
http://www.w3.org/International/articles/language-tags/

Copying public-i18n-core for expert comment.

I assume you refer to draft-phillips-langtags

I see mail from John Klensin saying this draft is 'stuck' and making a
particularly worrying statement:

  But, if, in the process, it succeeds in identifying 3066 as Obsolete
  without replacing it with anything that is usable and compatible, that
  could cause a serious reduction in interoperability in the areas where
  3066, today, is good enough or just about good enough

Where is draft-phillips-langtags now, in the process? Is it in the
RFC editor queue? If so, what status will it come out as? I see that it
version -08 entered Last Call as a BCP
http://xml.coverpages.org/LangTag200412.html
(useful article to read, by the way)

Latest version I could find was -10
