Remember to reread Section 3.7 of draft-registry.  It would be necessary 
to establish a "maintaining or registering authority," complete with an 
RFC and a discussion list much like this one.  Also, the RFC would 
explicitly have to specify the "en" and "us" as well as any other 
subtags appearing after the "s-"; it would not be acceptable to 
grandfather all the existing subtags in.

I'll still help in this effort if you like, and if that is the way it is 
decided we should go, but it's worth pointing out that the entry 
requirements are high.
