The replacement mechanism is ... sub-optimal (e.g., I was unable to figure out which of the 2-letter codes are reserved for 'user defined' purposes; something that was trivial with the decoding table).

Yes, the table was pretty handy.

Note that on the ISO OBP <https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#search> one
can click on Other codes.  That opens up a list with Exceptionally
reserved, Transitionally reserved, Indeterminately reserved, Formerly
used, Unassigned.

I suggest to use the Feedback button to ask ISO to add "User defined”
to that list or asking to reinstate the decoding table.
