   Any other relevant information:
      The structure of these tags follows the pattern used for yi-latn.
      This is a minimal list, and does not include all the possible
      combinations of country codes to indicate possible orthographic
      or spelling distinctions, on the pattern of other 3066 codes:
         for zh-*, HK, MO, CN, SG, TW, US,...
         for az-*, AZ, IR, ...
         for uz-*: AF, KZ, KG, TJ, TM, UZ, ...
         for sr-*, YU, BA, MK, HR, ...
      Nor does it encompass all the cases where different scripts are
      used. There is a need for a generative mechanism with scripts
      to keep from having to register all new combinations, but
      this registration is meant to address the immediate need.
