I scanned the latest language tag registry -
There is a category - grandfathered. Use of these tags are valid in
BCP47 language tag. Some of them were deprecated and its preferred
"well-formed" mappings. Below is the full list of grandfathered tags
currently available (File-Date: 2009-01-13).
art-lojban(deprecated) -> jbo
i-hak(deprecated) -> zh-hakka
i-klingon(deprecated) -> tlh
i-lux(deprecated) -> lb
i-navajo(deprecated) -> nv
no-bok(deprecated) -> nb
no-nyn(deprecated) -> nn
zh-guoyu(deprecated) -> zh-cmn
I'm wondering if we should include the support for grandfathered tags,
especially ones which do not have well-formed mappings. If we want to
support such cases, I would expect the whole string is handled as a
single unit (do not try to parse them out into separated fields.).
Anyway, I'd like to get your inputs.
