Two points of clarification:

- There is not yet any new RFC-1766 specification. (BTW, when it does
appear, it will have a different name.)

- The use of ISO 15924 for "sub-language specifications" has been removed
from the draft for the successor to RFC-1766 because there was no consensus
that the meaning and usage of these was clear.
