James Seng told me that Singapore uses Hans, but that its use of Hans
is different than that used in CN. So zh-Hans doesn't work for
Singapore. So, how do we deal with this? And what about zh-hakka, in
Hant or Hans?

Because the Tag Reviewer needs to have rules that can be applied
generally, and it is easy to see that zh- has been extended, and that
if script codes are added, there is a syntactic element which needs
to be addressed.
