On a technical level, this would be my preference, too, mostly because  
it's consistent with language tag definitions for RDF in general, but also  
because it is uncertain how much technical support we can expect from SIL.  
However, two questions:
- As for IANA updates (I see there are some recent ones:  
https://www.iana.org/assignments/lang-subtags-templates/lang-subtags-templates.xhtml):  
Is that actively synchronized with ISO 693-3 (etc) or does it have to be  
triggered by a change request (and if so, by whom and how)?
- What would be a realistic timeline to expect any results (I mean RDF  
data) from  i18n? Is there any way we can support that?

Best,
Christian
