I think that's a valid point. In other cases of deprecated alpha-2
identifiers (ji, in, iw, sh) such information is not provided, though in
each case except "sh" there is an adjacecent row with the correct
alternative. It wouldn't hurt to state explicitly what might be obvious
in those cases, however, and I think it would be a good general practice
whenever an identifier is being deprecated to give an indication of what
the recommended alternative is (if there is one).
