I don't mind the work.  In a way, though, we're talking about two 
different things here: (1) the format the Reviewer uses for submitting 
new subtags, in this case the compulsory ones based on core standards, 
and (2) the request form used by individual submitters to submit 
proposed (perhaps just-invented) subtags to ietf-languages for 
discussion.  If the Reviewer approves a new subtag submitted in format 
(2), he submits the new record to IANA in format (1).

Perhaps the best approach for me would be to write a separate page on 
"How to Request a New RFC 3066bis Subtag" and link the current page to
