> The IESG has approved the following document:
> - 'Deprecating Unicode Language Tag Characters: RFC 2482 is Historic'
>   <draft-presuhn-rfc2482-historic-02.txt> as an Informational RFC
> This document has been reviewed in the IETF but is not the product of an
> IETF Working Group.
> The IESG contact person is Alexey Melnikov.
> A URL of this Internet Draft is:
> https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-presuhn-rfc2482-historic/
> Technical Summary
>    RFC 2482, Language Tagging in Unicode Plain Text, described a
>    mechanism for using special Unicode language tag characters to
>    identify languages when needed without more general markup such as
>    that provided by XML.  The Unicode Consortium has deprecated that
>    facility and strongly recommends against its use.  RFC 2482 should be
>    moved to Historic to reduce the possibility that Internet
>    implementers would consider that system an appropriate mechanism for
>    identifying languages.
> Working Group Summary
>    This is not a WG document. However it was a result of the discussion
>    on the Apps Discuss mailing list.
> Document Quality
>    This document was discussed on the Apps Area wide mailing list
>    (Apps Discuss). It was also presented during the Apps Area
>    meeting in Maastricht. Many people expressed support for this
>    document (publicly and privately).
> Personnel
>    Alexey Melnikov is the Responsible Area Director.
