I agree with Havard's comment that the current long URL,
www.somewhere_at_loc.gov/that's/impossible/to/remember/let/alone/guess is
not a good situation. I have no problem with LOC managing the content; I
also don't care whether they host the site, or Keld or whomever. But it
would be very beneficial to have www.iso639.org as an entry point.

Rebecca mentioned concern over links currently pointing to the existing
location. That's not a serious obstacle, I don't think. The content could
be mirrored to appear at two locations, or the site could be moved to the
new location and a redirector set at the old URL (surely that doesn't scare
users these days). We could simply have the new domain host a page with
minimal info, basically links to the existing site, though I think that
would be less preferable. Mirroring would be better than that, IMO.
