Why do you think that ?  I'm just curious.  It's less than
a week that I pulled another public en-UK stunt instead of
en-GB in a Usenet newsgroup... <sigh />

http://www.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/NamesList.txt  768 KB

Yes, that's about twice (?) the size I'd expect for a 3066ter
registry,  For 3066bis it's less than 80 KB.  If you still
don't believe it let's wait until it's created, you can then
verify that it's really hosted by IANA and less than 80 KB.

=> John reviewed the drafts.  Bruce explained why he didn't.
Probably some others also looked at it, but didn't bother
to comment.

Those folks also didn't bother to comment it (assuming that
they exist, I don't share that opinion)

Yes.

> So that IETF would go by minority consensus?

No.  But those are TAObis / PECSI / general topics.  I'm still
trying to find out how it's supposed to work - especially if
there are conflicts, or if somebody only claims that there's
a problem.

It was only an _example_ for a public link to the relevant part
(my personal POV) of the old registry = "stuff I won't find in
the source standards".  I could as well link to a single file
<http://www.iana.org/assignments/language-tags> or to the HTML
view <http://www.iana.org/assignments/lang-tag-apps.htm> of
this directory.

For a fun effect try:
http://purl.net/xyzzy/-AWFID/inlinktext:%2522language%2520tags%2522

What I consider is that it may take years until the last user
of language tags will note that RfC 3066 has been replaced.

                           Bye, Frank
