Currently these tags are syntactically correct but have no defined
semantics. The expectation is that the former will become valid when
ISO 639-3 reaches IS status, and that zh-nan-Hans-CN will be the valid
form of the latter, since "wuu" and "nan" are the 639-3 codes for Wu and
Minnan respectively. The form zh-min-nan will continue to be valid as
an unproductive grandfathered form in any case.

On process grounds, rather. Unfortunate, but there it is.
