I strongly agree with Michael on this.

What action is therefore necessary?

with Peter that we need to make a decision. It is totally confusing to

wondering if it was intentional or an oversight when it was then
published in ISO 639-1?

You can recommend precise tags for when you can determine if
something is Serbian or Bosnian or Croatian but the fact remains that a
book entitled "Srpskohrvatski slovnik" is a Serbo-Croatian
dictionary, not anything else. The "sh" code has a use.
