Will someone agree to take on adding this to CH?  I would but am not 
sure of the precise status of 
http://www.iana.org/assignments/language-subtag-registry (and of 
http://www.iana.org/assignments/language-tag-extensions-registry ), so 
I'll get the details wrong.

I think we will want to add a simililar note to att.global

For the record, in Paris we discussed these invalid values based on this 
ticket that Syd submitted:


We assigned the cleanup to Piotr, but I'm sure he appreciates Martin 
taking care of the things he encounters.
