I thought my statement made that clear: once encoded, always encoded. "Retired" means it's no longer recommended -- basically the same as deprecated. But I think I've made clear for a long time: ISO 639-3 will be stable in the sense that an identifier will always retain its semantic and will never get re-defined.

Does "retired" mean that the code would be formally withdrawn? Assuming
it means this, does that mean that the code would never be reused for
some other language?
