I think what Peter is saying is:
i. If someone wanted to use the ISO15924 script code 'prsl' (not currently
assigned, I believe), then they wouldn't have to submit a request for it.
ii. If someone wanted to use 'prsl' in an extension (e.g. a private use
subtag), then they also wouldn't have to submit a request for it.
iii. If someone wanted to use 'prsl' as a primary language subtag, then
they would have to register it.
iv. Otherwise 'prsl' is forbidden as a (variant) subtag *and* cannot be
registered under RFC 3066bis.
