Well, it's useful to do it when it's suitable to do it.
RFC 3066 describes the geeral context.

Probably _not_ self-evident, on the basis of the above
and previous evidence.

Why don't you just rely on doing that then? It's perfectly in line
with the RFC, and seems to be sufficiently well-formed as a tag
(i.e. the syntax is OK).
If you did that, other users are free to use it (if you inform them
of it, and _if_ they find it useful) or to ignore it (which is what
I would do if I came across it).
