John Clews adds:

Let's also remember the possible move towards having Resian as a
language in ISO 639-3, also discussed by the group.

In terms of the overall format, if that enables a simple tag like
"res" rather than
"sl-rozaj" it will also make for much simpler subtags like
"res-bisk..." rather than the more cumbersome

[res hasn't been checked by me as to whether or not it's an
Ethnologue code already, and I am assuming that "bisk..." will be
used rather than "bisk" (i.e. avoiding 4-letter subtags)]
