It was certainly educating, stuff for some notes in 3066ter:
- Many tags offer no clue about the, as you said, "mode",
it could be written / spoken / signed. Tags with explicit
scripts most probably indicate "written", and that could
be captures in movies.
- There aren't too many sign languages. It's nothing like
"most language subtags times many region subtags". It's
a well defined small set, and a generic variant isn't the
best way to identify it.
- an extension registry offering s-ASL. s-BSL, s-ISL, etc,
might be a clean solution for signed content. It doesn't
answer questions about "written" vs. "spoken" content in
some contexts with Suppress-Scripts for deaf users.
