Not solely, of course, since the LSR includes collective "languages" 
from 639-2 that do not exist in 639-3, but which must remain in the LSR.

Other than that, though, are you saying that the names from 639-2 that 
are not in 639-3 should be removed from the LSR?  Bear in mind that the 
language names recently added to 639-2 and the LSR (Bedawiyet, Dene 
Suline, Kapampangan, etc.) are not yet in the available 639-3 download 
files.  Accepting 639-3 without also considering 639-2 would take the 
LSR back a few steps.
