I hate to beat up on Michael -- it's been a rough month for him -- but
I'm a bit disappointed that this tag was registered.  With the expected
approval of RFC 3066bis in the coming months, it seems to me that the
linguistic and/or locale needs intended to be served by es-americas
could be equally served by es-419, an ordinary code created through the
generative mechanism and not needing registration.

I assume es-americas and es-419 will be considered synonyms when RFC
3066bis is released, but es-americas will still have to be maintained in
the registry indefinitely.
