Maybe no precedent, but several have indicated a preference to recommend "zh-Latn-pinyin".
(For all the same reasons, I have all along wished we could have given *-Latn as the prefix for fonipa, but 4646 doesn't allow that.)

So, what helps us move forward here?
We must choose what is recommended, rather than what is permitted.
Are we recommending that people use "zh-Latn-pinyin" rather than simply
"zh-pinyin", or are we making no such recommendation? All other questions
are already settled.
Insofar as we make no recommendation as to whether fi-fonipa or fi-fonupa or fi-Latn-fonipa or fi-Latn-fonupa is used, I find no precedent to make a recommendation for such a distinction for either pinyin or wadegile.
