Thank you for your message.
In my opinion, in the case that the texts of the six standards forming the current parts (or maybe only the five first parts) of ISO 639 would be united in one single normative text as a revised standard ISO 639, I would find wise to create a unique ISO 639 Maintenance Agency (ISO 639/MA) to replace the four current ISO 639 Registration Authorities (ISO 639/RAs) and the ISO 639/RA-JAC as well. I do not find appropriate to create a single ISO 639 Registration Authority (ISO 639/RA) in this occasion.

> Dear Members of the Joint Advisory Committee,
> As many of you know, the TC-37 decided to get input about the possible revision of ISO 639 before drafting or proposing a New Work Item. Attached is the survey that has been developed to solicit preliminary input. We expect to send it to no more than 50 people, to receive input on the current standard and processes. If further input is needed, we will formulate a questionnaire as a second step, using input from the survey.
> Please read through the questions, and let me know if there is something crucial that should be added before I send it out to a selected list. And if there are any people that should receive the survey, send the names to Bill Rivers, at the address listed.
