That might not be unreasonable. Of course, we wouldn't need a change in BCP 47 to effect that; it might be sufficient just to have a working procedure within ietf-languages that, if a variant registration comes along, then we always look into the possibility of registering the 639-6 ID, adapted as needed. The most important reason to revise BCP 47 would be to formalize requirements on how the ID should be adapted (e.g. requiring "6" + alpha4 -- or whatever).

Makes sense.
