I suppose having it to replace the current contrib/isbn would be a good option, this 13 digits ISBN will be the standard by 2007, and some publishers are already issuing 13 digit ISBN numbers since last year.
The module I created uses int64 instead of strings, for the numbers, and thus the performance might be better too, though I haven't tested for speed.
Please, let me know if it will be included as a contrib, as I have updated the ISBN range numbers to include the most recent ones.
